1 BUSINESS PROPOSAL

2 POSSIBLE MODEL: UNITED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES OF NORTHERN WESTCHESTER

3 BACKGROUND When one thinks of Northern Westchester, thoughts of affluence, comfort, wealth, suburbia, and security are sparked. Need is far from the list of thoughts. However, there is great need facing the elderly population whose independence, social involvement and wellbeing is being threatened by its limited access to transportation and/or knowledge of the options available.

4 GOALS Inspired by the UnitedWeRide initiative to increase transportation to those in need through a family of transportation services, United Transportation Services of Northern Westchester aims to older individuals access to transportation through the coordination of paratransit, municipal, private and volunteer services in Northern Westchester. With increased access to transportation, older individuals will not only be able to maintain their independence. They will also age in place in a comfortable environment in which they are familiar, allowing them to maintain valuable connections with others and positive well being.

5 MODEL Callers would be directed to a central calling station where they would be asked of their specific needs and directed to the proper transportation service. The answering service would be live, not an automated service (a more personalized design that will better suite the needs of the callers). Answering service personal will call the transportation service directly and arrange the ride for the caller. Personal will choose the appropriate service based on the level of assistance needed and the callers financial capability. A list, such as the one created by aloft (http://www.goaloft.org/transportation_directory_9_2010.pdf), will be used as a reference.

6 MODEL Intelligent Transportation Services would be used to track vehicles from certain services that are fully occupied, directing personal call to similar services that are available. Transportation Management System allows transportation providers to track, organize, and coordinate rides for senior citizens. e.g. AlternetRides s AssistedRides Database Advanced Traffic Management System Outline the most efficient traffic routes, Detect areas of congestion, increases mobility, reduces transportation expenses and redundancies in coverage. e.g. IRIS or Trapeze Transport Software Callers will have the option to provide information, such as their annual finances (i.e. annual social security payments, income, etc.), local address, etc., in order to expedite the process of finding a service that is not only appropriate for their wants, but also their budget. Because this option is not mandatory, everyone will have access to the service, not just members in the database.

7 MODEL Answering service would operate from 7:00 am 10 p.m., Monday-Sunday (federal holidays will be included in these hours of operation).

8 OLDER ADULTS & TECHNOLOGY According to USA Today, 79 million adults, age 65+, experience complications from diseases and disabilities With the increase of older adults in the US, assistive technologies can be beneficial for Retention of Mental Cognition Studies have show that computer brain games can prevent older adults from Alzheimer s and memory loss Increase quality of life Allowing older adults to stay connected with family and friends

9 ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES For computers, assistive technologies can include physical and software modifications Examples of hardware modifications Oversized mice and keyboards Screen magnifiers Braille terminal Eye gazers Examples of software AT Virtual magnifiers Voice recognition Narrators Gesture controller

It must be stressed to providers that joining this service will be of no cost to them. It will merely improve access to appropriate services to older residents who are in need.
