ITNBluegrass provides safe, affordable, dignified automobile transportation 24/7 to people 60+ and adults with visual impairment anywhere in Fayette and northern Jessamine Counties and Versailles in Woodford County. Service is "arm-through-arm, door-through-door" with help with steps and packages. Volunteer drivers drive on their own time and can earn credit for every mile they drive that they can accrue in an account for future transportation needs or donate to someone else.

This September, we kicked off our 10th-anniversary year with nearly 70,000 rides delivered! We started ride service at an inauspicious time, the month the stock market crashed in 2008, but we believe our success is due to the older people in this community who said, "This is what I need to remain active and live an independent life even after I've stopped or limited my driving." Only 40% of our rides are to medical appointments so people are using the service for all kinds of activities, including going to work and socializing. While we can't replicate the actual driving experience completely, we try to offer a viable alternative, including interesting drivers and friendly ride coordinators. We are excited to begin a new decade of serving seniors in three central Kentucky counties!
