To provide a community-based, and community supported, economically viable and consumer-oriented, quality transportation service for seniors and visually impaired adults.
ITNMontereyCounty continues to provide arm-in-arm, door-through-door dignified rides to seniors and visually impaired adults on the Monterey Peninsula and Salinas relying on volunteers who use their vehicle, giving rides in their community when convenient. In 2021, we joined forces with Alliance on Aging our outreach partner to participate in a nationally FTA funded rural project called “ITNCountry” focused on rural transit projects under ITNAmerica. Community stakeholders influenced the development of two projects: NorthLine serving rural areas north of Salinas to the Santa Cruz and San Benito county lines. ValleyLine is for residents south of Salinas through Soledad, still hoping to expand into King City as a part of this pilot project. Flat rate service models for "Life Essential" medical, grocery, and pharmacy needs are the initial focus of services for both projects. Volunteers will be vital to these projects sustainability. Giving 1 ride a month makes a HUGE difference!
“ITNMontereyCounty has made a great difference in my traveling needs. I appreciate, so much, that ITN will transport me and my dog to the Vet and for grooming….it was one of my main concerns when I decided to stop driving.”
