A nonprofit, primarily volunteer-run transportation program serving Hall County’s senior citizens has received seed money from the Northeast Georgia Health System to help it become operational. iTNLanier aims to provide “arm-in-arm, door-through-door” rides to seniors over age 65 who can no longer drive, as well as the visually impaired. It is meant to be a personal, reliable, cost-effective way to provide transport services to active seniors and the elderly, whether they need to make a doctor’s appointment, attend church, do some grocery shopping or gather for social events. “I am supportive of this new initiative and believe it will complement the existing countywide Dial-A-Ride services,” said Phillippa Lewis Moss, director of the Gainesville-Hall County Community Service Center, which operates the Hall Area Transit public bus service.
