TRIP for America
TRIP is a special self-directed, practical and emotional support mileage reimbursement transportation service that complements public transportation. It solves most difficult transportation challenges for elderly, disabled and alone individuals. TRIP works by encouraging volunteer friends and neighbors to transport transit dependent older adults, people with disabilities, and others to access medical services and for other purposes where no transit service exists or when the individual is too frail, ill, or unable to use public transportation for other reasons.
The program is highly adaptable and very cost efficient. It can be operated in almost any geographical setting, can be scaled to a community’s available resources, and can be operated by paid or volunteer staff. Every community wanting to improve transportation service for the elderly and disabled should consider implementing a TRIP model service.
TRIP was started by the non-profit Independent Living Partnership twenty-five years ago, is now over 2 million trips old and wise, and we are assisting organizations and agencies across the country to implement this service to meet their most difficult and expensive transportation challenges.
