Mission Statement

To provide a community-based, community-supported, economically viable and consumer-oriented, quality transportation service for seniors.

Description

The Center for Healthy Aging (CHA) began developing ITNSantaMonica (now called ITNGreaterLA) in early 2005 as the first replication of the Independent Transportation Network in Portland, Maine. CHA was particularly interested in the program because one of its offices is located only a few blocks from the site of the 2003 farmers' market tragedy involving an older driver.

The initial service area included Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, and Brentwood. Starting this October, we have expanded our service to nearby parts of Culver City, Westwood, Mar Vista, Venice and West Los Angeles.

Exciting plans are underway to start new partnerships, expand the organization and provide more rides to older adults and those with visual impairments. Service is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week in personal cars of the volunteer drivers.
