Allentown, PA – A special tour rolled into Allentown today. The independent transportation network is a service that uses volunteers to drive elderly and visually impaired people around town.

(REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.) – The Independent Transportation Network, ITN, company is in 27 states across the country and now it’s coming to Delaware.
All thanks to Sussex County native, Nancy Feichtl who spearheaded the idea.
“We’ll take you to the doctor’s office, the grocery store, get your hair done, take your dog to the vet, go to the movies, even if you want to go to the bar and watch the football game,” explained Feichtl.
The network provides transportation to senior citizens over the age of 65 and adults who are visually impaired.
The network already has sparked an interest with some middle-aged children.
“They won’t have to take off work, they just have to make sure that their parents’ accounts are active so they can get where they need to go,” said Feichtl.

The fifth installment in Nashville Public Television’s NPT Reports: Aging Matters series examines what it takes for Tennesseans to successfully age in place.
It’s what most of us say we want, to age in our own home until the end of our lives. But aging in place is no guarantee of a high quality of life. And as we age, our needs may change. Will we be able to climb the stairs, reach those upper cabinets, and manage the upkeep any home requires?

I-T-N, the Independent Transportation Network is coming to Memphis.
No more taking off work to get parents or grandparents back and forth to doctor or hair appointments. ITNMemphis offers door to door service.
“It’s for seniors and the visually impaired. And in the Memphis area we’re defining seniors as people over 60. And anyone who is over 18, who’s visually impaired, it will take people in those categories anywhere they want to go 24/7,” says Pat Hickman, Operations Manager at ITN.
