Hi Rob,

If you're a student you could try advertising on student listservs at
your school, or with the student employment office, for a driver you
could pay $7/hr or so for the health club and other trips. You could
also talk with community service clubs at your school (such as
sororities, frats, or purely service organizations) and see if there
are students looking for volunteer hours, and then offer volunteer
time in exchange for rides. Even though the drivers aren't getting
paid directly, they need the hours for a requirement, which will keep
them accountable. I know some honors programs/courses require service
hours as well.
