ITNBluegrass uses trained volunteer drivers to deliver most of its rides. Volunteers earn mileage reimbursement* and/or mileage credits, the latter of which can be accrued in one’s own account for future use (Transportation Social Security); donated to a friend or family member to help pay for rides; donated to the Road Scholarship Program for low-income riders or given back to ITNBluegrass as a tax-deductible contribution. Volunteers also receive a free yearly ITN membership (value $50) to give to someone else.
The best part, though, is making a difference in the lives of Central Kentucky’s older citizens! All too often, older people are shut off from their communities simply because they have no transportation. Whether it’s a ride to the mall, to visit a loved one in a nursing home, or to see a doctor, customers use ITNBluegrass to maintain the vitality and independence that they cherished when they drove an automobile.

To drive, simply sign up for a two-hour training and pass a criminal/motor vehicle violation background check. Then drive at your convenience – rides are mostly scheduled in advance, and drivers choose their own schedules.
If you have an interest in senior transportation – as a potential rider, as an adult child or friend of a potential rider or as a volunteer driver – please give ITNBluegrass a call at 859-252-8665 or email info@itnbluegrass.org. Application materials and other information are also available on the website at www.itnbluegrass.org. *Currently at $0.40 per mile.
