Abstract

"City" piece on the Independent Transportation Network (ITN), a Portland-based nonprofit organization founded by Kathy Freund in 1995 that provides automobile transportation to middle-class senior citizens and blind people. Nine of ITN's 12 board members resigned in mid-December over Freund's refusal to step down from her post as executive director so she could focus on developing a national model of the program. In 2001, ITN provided 25,000 rides, or about 70 a day. In the last seven years, the group has received $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the American Association of Retired Persons, and the Great Bay Foundation of Portland. About half of ITN's annual operating budget of about $450,000 comes from fees charged to riders.
