New App Available for Transportation Help
By Karin Stewart ~
The Denver Regional Mobility & Access Council has created a mobile app designed to assist older adults with finding transportation that fits their needs in the Denver Metro area. The mobile app is called Getting There and is available for iPhones/iPads and Androids. The app is free to download and use and can be found in the Apple App Store or Google Play. After the app is downloaded it is ready to use. No username and password required! Once the app is opened it will walk you through a few questions to help narrow down the transportation that best suits you. When the questions have been answered hit the “Get Me There” button and a list of transportation providers will pop up based on your answers. The app provides information on each transportation resource, including: if there is a cost, how far in advance you need to schedule a ride, if they accommodate a wheelchair, and other additional information. You can also call the transportation provider straight from the app by tapping their phone number to schedule a ride! To find out more about the app or to schedule a free training on how to use the app please contact Ashley Doty at the Denver Regional Mobility & Access Council. You can either email her at email@example.com or call 303-243-3113. Funding for the app was provided by Next Fifty Initiative.
