WHAT IS ITNPortland?
The Independent Transportation Network of Portland, ITNPortland, has provided 24/7 door-through-door and arm-through-arm transportation to older people in Greater Portland since 1995, delivering more than a third of a million rides. Through ITN’s program, volunteer drivers earn credits for driving and donate those credits to people of limited means who need rides. We call it the Road Scholarship Fund.
Now, with a grant from the Rines Thompson Foundation, ITNPortland is working with the Portland Symphony Orchestra and Portland Stage to get the word out about Fine Rides for the Fine Arts and bring the Culture of Kindness to the art loving community.
