eye exam [1]With all the funding problems in transportation, it’s nice to see this transportation program is continuing to expand and gain more alliances.

ITNRacineCounty [2], a transportation solution for seniors and the visually impaired, now plans to be a part of an ITNAmerica [3] — a transportation service for seniors and adults with visual impairment  — program intended to raise awareness of the challenges associated with vision impairment, low vision, senior mobility issues and the shortage of locally-available transportation options for seniors, according to a report in The (Racine, Wisconsin) Journal Times [4].

One of the ITNAmerica initiatives is to fund transportation to and from medical eye care services.

People who are registered with ITNRacineCounty are able to call 262-554-1091 and arrange for transportation to medical eye care appointments free of charge, according to The Journal Times report.
