The first national, non-profit transportation service for the aging population will reach the half-million ride mark Monday, March 4, at one of ITNAmerica’s 23 ITN affiliates in 18 states.
Local affiliate, ITNStCharles began providing rides in April 2010 and is nearing the 10,000 mark for St. Charles County residents.
“Our customers feel safe and secure with our drivers, and so many friendships have blossomed between our volunteer drivers and our customers,” said Susan Kallash-Bailey, Executive Director.
Executive Director Lori Fidler handed Chaney a $25 gift certificate, good for more of ITN’s chauffeured trips, because Chaney had just logged the group’s 500,000th ride.
Notching that milestone for the 16-year-old group, which operates in 22 states, was a thrill, Fidler said.
“We’re excited this happened here because we’re really just getting started,” she said. The metro Detroit office, Michigan’s first, opened last fall to match people 60 and older and sight-impaired adults, with volunteer drivers, Fidler said.
