A research and development community transportation initiative for rural and small communities
ITNEverywhere is ITNAmerica's newest community transportation initiative. ITNAmerica has completed 6 years of research and development and is ready to build and deploy this non-profit community service. ITNEverywhere aims to be to community mobility what eBay is to flea markets and what Craigslist is to classified ads. Our ITNEverywhere vision is to establish a non-profit marketplace, supported by technology, where people can share private transportation.
ITNEverywhere is for Everyone
Unlike some of the for-profit ridesharing solutions, ITNEverywhere will accommodate people of all ages, incomes, and abilities, including older people and those who are less tech-savvy. ITNEverywhere will solve transportation problems for everyone by combining rideshare, carshare, volunteer transport, ITN (Independent Transportation Network affiliates), and community transport. It is for people who:
- want to reduce their carbon footprint by ridesharing and car sharing
- like to help others
- want to use a better transportation solution
- use their smart phones to find a ride
- would like a human being to help them arrange transportation
- want give up driving, but still want to go places
- love to drive and meet new people.
How it will work
Much like ITN membership, participants will join ITNEverywhere in their rural or small community, become a dues-paying member, open a Personal Transportation Account, and pay for rides through innovative payment options. ITNEverywhere users would earn credit by sharing a ride with others, volunteering to drive anyone in need of a ride, or by trading a car they no longer drive in exchange for rides. Individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations may join.
