ITNNorthJersey is training their 90th volunteer driver this week. The Independent Transportation Network of North Jersey is making great strides in just over 2 years. They started with 3 volunteers driving 2 rider members, now they are set to give their 14,000th ride in Bergen County.
ITNNorthJersey is a community based transportation service for seniors and adults with visual impairment. They help dozens of members get to all kinds of appointments including: kidney dialysis, jobs, errands, routine medical and even the hairdresser.
Like Dora, the consistent feedback from members is overwhelmingly positive. For many of them it's not just about getting around with ease, it's also about doing so with dignity. And for the volunteer drivers, they say it's a rewarding way to spend their time.
