Description of project

SMiles provides door-through-door senior-friendly transportation in Blount County, Tennessee. Volunteers, driving their own vehicles, take SMiles members where they want or need to go within the county. Riders pay $6 per round trip, which subsidizes the actual cost of $14.85 for each trip. SMiles has provided over 28,000 trips since its launch in September, 2013.
