MyRide Sevier County
LIVE-IT’s new program MyRide Sevier County is designed to provide Sevier County seniors, 60 years and older, with much needed transportation. Rides to doctor appointments, pharmacies or grocery stores can help them maintain their independence, enabling them to lead a healthier, more productive life and therefore a happier one. It is a volunteer-based service that utilizes advanced internet software to schedule, track, maintain and manage common destinations and repeat riders. Volunteers are provided internet access to all scheduled riders and the ability to choose a convenient time. Volunteer drivers can even schedule to have a senior’s ride coincide with one they were already planning for themselves. The ease and flexibility of the program make it a great fit for both senior citizen riders and volunteer drivers alike.
