Transportation for rural and small communities

ITNCountry is an exciting new program of ITNAmerica — the first and only national nonprofit transportation network for older people and adults with visual impairments.  ITNCountry is a transportation platform specially designed for rural and small communities. In 2021, ITNCountry is launching in 10 communities across the U.S. A broader national rollout is scheduled for early 2022.

By accessing state-of-the-art ITNRides 2.0 software and innovative back-office solutions, including an online learning center, a nonprofit or governmental organization can effectively create a new community transportation program using volunteer or paid drivers or take their existing program to the next level.

ITNCountry taps into a suite of award winning ITN programs, such as the Personal Transportation Account™, CarTrade™, Ride & Shop™, Healthy Miles™, and Transportation Social Security™.  With ITNCountry, each community can customize their transportation service to meet their local needs, while flexing their own community’s name and brand.  Local stakeholders decide the hours of service, ride purpose parameters, whether to use paid or volunteer staff or a combination, and the size of the service area. ITNCountry supports community transportation and local control with the back-office resources of a national network.
