ITN NorthJersey: Dignified Transportation for Seniors
Volunteer Drivers Needed: A Program of ITN America
Who has a driving desire to help people?
Be a lifeline
You love to drive and have some spare time on your hands. Think about what fun and how rewarding your help and companionship would be to a senior who can no longer get behind the wheel.
All of us have a stake in helping to ensure that older adults and the visually impaired can remain active once they stop driving. The Independent Transportation Network* offers safe rides in automobiles, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Volunteers help older people stay connected to families, friends and activities that bring meaning to their lives and to yours.
Become a Volunteer
*You help make driving safer for everyone
*You provide a positive alternative to a huge national problem by ensuring that seniors have a great choice without burdening family or friends.
*You help seniors stay independent and healthy by taking them to visit friends, to the gym or to doctor’s appointment.
*You get mileage reimbursement for part of the ride and transportation credits for the rest. Save these credits for your own future use, transfer them to a loved one or donate them to the Road Scholarship Program for low-income riders.
We’ll work around your schedule
Provide one afternoon a week or a few hours during the month. You’ll receive training and we’ll arrange your driving assignments and routes around your schedule. You can even pick up a rider on your way to work and do a good deed before the day’s begun.
