AROUND THE INDUSTRY

WVs Mountain Line Offers a NewFIT

The Mountain Line Transit Authority in Morgantown, WV, recently introduced its “NewFIT” curb-to-curb service: a joint venture with In Touch & Concerned, a social service agency that provides accessible services including trips to appointments and supermarkets.

By calling a single phone number, any resident of Monongalia County, WV, who needs transportation—specifically Medicaid or Assistive Services clients who need a ride to work or training, medical appointments, or shopping—can get it through NewFIT. Typically this is curb to curb service, but the agency will provide additional assistance or door-through-door service if the client requests it.

Medicaid, veterans’ programs, senior programs, and other subsidized services may cover the cost of using this service, while passengers without access to any other service pay $9 each way. While persons with disabilities receive preference for the service, it is open to all county residents.

The transit agency and In Touch & Concerned created the program with federal funds through the New Freedom Program.
