Wentzville partners with iTNStCharles to provide new transportation option for senior residents

Posted on Friday, August 4, 2017 at 9:17 am

Wentzville’s Mayor and Board of Aldermen have approved a new partnership with ITNStCharles now ITNGateway, which offers transportation for senior citizens (ages 60 and older) adults with visual impairments and adults with disabilities. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Thursday, Aug. 10 at 1 p.m. at the Green Lantern Senior Center (at 506 S. Linn Ave. in Wentzville) to launch this important service.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any transportation needs within St. Charles County. Rides are available to any destination within the service area, with no limits on ride purpose. Rides are provided in private vehicles by trained drivers.

There is an annual fee of $50 to sign up, but after just three rides (which must be taken within a year of registering), the City of Wentzville will reimburse eligible residents for the entire $50 fee. The resident is responsible for the cost of the rides, which is comparable to other ride service options. To be eligible for the annual fee reimbursement, you must be a Wentzville resident. After eligible residents have completed three separate days of rides (within one year of registering), ITNGateway invoices can be submitted to City Hall for reimbursement of the $50 annual fee.

For additional information or to verify your residency, please call City Hall at (636) 327-5101. To learn more about
