ITN SunCoast - More Than Just a Ride - Providing Transportation for Seniors Living on Limited Incomes!

Description of project

iTNSunCoast 's Road Scholar program provides low and moderate income seniors (60 years of age and above) and adults with vision limitations (18 years of age and over) with rides for any purpose at any time on any day to anywhere within our service area. The Road Scholar program provides rides to qualifying individuals at a cost that is significantly less than our regular charge. We also waive the annual iTNSunCoast membership fee. Additional benefits to Road Scholar Program participants include improved physical, mental and emotional wellbeing due to access to transportation that allows riders to get out of the house and do the things they need and want to do. They can more easily and predictably go to doctors' appointments, do grocery shopping, attend exercise classes and visit with friends, for example. This is particularly the case for older people living on limited incomes who are often housebound and socially isolated. In addition, the social component of our service is for some of our riders as or more important than the transportation itself. Friendships develop between riders and drivers as well as our riders and our office staff. To many of our riders, we become members of their extended family.
