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.

Help us Recruit

There are older people in our community who need rides right now. If you know older drivers or non-drivers who could benefit from our services, please have them call (201) 398-6885 or email info@ITNNorthJersey.org to learn more.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
