Dignified transportation for seniors   Helping Seniors Stay Mobile

Our Mission

Support sustainable, community-based transportation services for seniors throughout the world by building a senior transportation network through research, policy analysis and education, and by promoting lifelong safety and mobility.

A transportation solution for America's aging population
dignified transportation for seniors

Across America, communities large and small are struggling to meet the transportation needs of seniors. Everywhere, the issues are the same:

  • How to provide the kind of door-through-door service older people want and need
  • How to recruit enough volunteer drivers, and how to manage insurance
  • How to arrange rides, especially in rural and suburban communities
  • How to pay for it all

ITNAmerica provides its affiliates with a proven sustainable business model to solve these issues.

Wal-Mart, please install a bike rack here!

LATE UPDATE, 13 May 2014, 9:14 PM Central Time... Anne Hatfield Wal-Mart tweeted me to let me know that a bike rack is going in to this location!


Hello, I heard from Facebook that you are building a Wal-Mart neighborhood market in Houston, TX 77095, at the corner of Barker-Cypress Road and Longenbaugh Rd.

This store is adjacent to a neighborhood which has good sidewalks, and where bike trails have been developed.

It would be very good for your store and for the neighborhood to have a BICYCLE RACK at this Wal-Mart, so that shoppers and your employees can access this store without making yet another short-distance car drive.

Walgreens directly across Barker-Cypress from your future store already has a bike rack.

Thank you
Peter Wang


Walmart Neighborhood Market coming to Cypress

May 7, 2014

A new Walmart Neighborhood Market is planned for the northeast corner of Barker Cypress Road and Longenbaugh Drive.

Construction is expected to begin on the 41,000-square-foot store in about a month, said Anne Hatfield, director of communications for Walmart.

The neighborhood market will carry fresh produce, groceries, health and beauty supplies and other household items. The new Cypress location will also have a gas station and pharmacy.

Walmart Neighborhood Market stores typically bring about 95 new jobs to the community, in addition to construction jobs.

Hatfield said the future store is on track to open by early 2015.

New carpool

My carpooler drops me off at Westheimer and CityWest, and I ride my Dahon folding bike 1.5 miles to work at 10001 Richmond Ave.

We start on Western Pass Lane, 77095.
