The whole concept is based on peer-to-peer association, and rooted in the notion of "paying it forward". You might ride in your former car; you might become friends with your driver. You might even be a volunteer driver in California and send the credits to a ride account that is used by your mom in Maine. I think it's extremely cool.
ITN began here in Maine, and thanks to Katherine's vision, it has spread to cities and states across the country. It's an ingenious model for service, and it fills a unique niche that complements the important services provided by other organizations like RTP. Need a ride? Want to volunteer? Click here!
