    Mountain Transit drivers announce each stop name as the bus approaches.

TRIP Transportation Reimbursement and information Program

Mountain Transit strives to improve mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities.  The Transportation Reimbursement for Individuals Program (TRIP) provides an incentive for volunteer drivers (usually friends or neighbors) to assist eligible individuals who are unable to drive or access public transportation by providing necessary, escorted transportation.   Participants receive funds to reimburse the volunteer driver and to offset the cost associated with providing transportation. TRIP is a self-directed, mileage reimbursement transportation service that complements public transportation. Volunteers such as friends and neighbors transport transit-dependent elderly, people with disabilities, and others to access medical and other services where no transit service exists

Contact Mountain Transit’s Outreach Coordinator Tiffany Millburn at 909-963-7416 to receive the application materials.

 

What TRIP Participants are saying:

“Without the program I would be homebound and would not be able to leave my home.”

“I am a left hemiplegic in a wheelchair. I would be stuck without TRIP.”

“My family has passed or live out of state. My friends have passed away while I have been bedridden. Without TRIP’s help I am sure I too would have passed on”.

“TRIP. is very important to me. I cannot drive at all. My driver is my main human contact”.

“TRIP. assistance allows me the opportunity to be more independent to interact with friends and also to meet people. Providing an incentive makes me feel less burdensome by providing drivers with money to help with gas.  Thanks to TRIP”

“Without TRIP assistance I’d have deeper mental depression, more suicidal thoughts.
My physical condition would deteriorate dramatically.”
