• New Transportation Service For Seniors Available In Memphis

    You don't have to wait until Black Friday to find a deal for the seniors in your life. Fox 13's Earle Farrell has just the thing.

    I-T-N, the Independent Transportation Network is coming to Memphis.

    No more taking off work to get parents or grandparents back and forth to doctor or hair appointments. ITN Memphis offers door to door service.

    "It's for seniors and the visually impaired. And in the Memphis area we're defining seniors as people over 60. And anyone who is over 18, who's visually impaired, it will take people in those categories anywhere they want to go 24/7," says Pat Hickman, Operations Manager at ITN.

    All you have to do is register online, fill out an application and schedule the appointments.

    ITN will take care of the rest and there's no money exchanging hands during the trips. The trips are pre-paid and work like a debit card. You can also volunteer to drive and earn ride credits for yourself or someone who needs a lift.

    "As the holidays near, you can actually give gift certificates for people to get rides from ITN. So, that's a great thing for families to think about as they come home and visit their senior relatives and they realize they shouldn't be driving as much as they are," says Tommie Cervetti, ITN Driver.

    Before getting behind the wheel this holiday season, consider getting there safe with ITN Memphis.
