The Independent Transportation Network (ITN) is a
nonprofit, community-based organization providing dignified, consumer-oriented
transportation for seniors and people with visual impairments.
As an ITNCountry community, this organization benefits
from more than a decade of research to develop a model for economically
sustainable transportation. Among the
public and private organizations that have supported this research are the
Federal Transit Administration, the Transportation Research Board (National
Academies of Science), AARP, the Great Bay Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs,
and the Atlantic Philanthropies. Thousands
of private individuals and their families have participated in this research
and development, without which, this service would not be possible.
In the spirit of this public/private effort, to continue
the development and analysis that will allow ITNAmerica to better understand
the mobility needs of older Americans, their families and their communities,
and to continuously improve the quality and sustainability of the service, we
routinely collect data about riders and the rides we deliver. The identity of our riders is kept entirely
confidential in all reports we use for these purposes.
In addition to this routine data collection, ITNAmerica
also conducts research. From time to time,
we may ask you to participate in a research project. Your participation in the ITNAmerica research
studies is voluntary and confidential. If
you prefer not to participate in the research studies, your decision will not
affect the quality of your service or your eligibility to use ITN for rides.
Your signature indicates that you understand that
routinely-collected ITNAmerica data will be used to study and improve
transportation for seniors, and that you may, from time to time, be asked
questions about your use of the service. We will do our best to provide rides for you and
we will always strive to inform you when we cannot provide a ride. However, we are not responsible for any costs
or expenses you may incur when we are unable to provide a ride for a specific
time and place.
