Transportation for Seniors/Visually Impaired Comes to Mercer County
The Greater Mercer TMA is bringing a new transportation service to Mercer County for older adults and the visually impaired. Called ITNGreaterMercer™, the service is expected to be operational in early to mid fall. Representatives of ITNGreaterMercer came to campus recently to discuss how the service can be helpful to those attending classes at the college. They asked us to help spread the word.

ITNGreaterMercer™ is a community-based transportation service that will be available seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day for any trip purpose within a fifteen-mile radius. The service will pick people up at their door; with a paid or volunteer driver in a private automobile, not vans or buses. Members who want to use the service set up a personal debit account so cash is never exchanged in the vehicle. For further information or to become a member call (609) 452-1491 or visit the website here.
