Seniors transportation program eyes expansion throughout Sussex
Independent Transportation Network/SouthernDelaware is the only transportation program targeting seniors that offers 24-hour service, seven days a week. The network provides door-to-door service for residents over 55 years of age and people of any age who are visually impaired.
A team of 55 trained and vetted volunteer drivers take seniors on a variety of outings – from medical appointments to social events to shopping trips. “This helps people regain their independence and love of life,” said director Janis Hanwell. “It opens a whole new world for people, and especially those who have no family here.”
