Thankful for Mountain Mobility

I am writing in regard to Ms. Bergen’s letter [“Mountain Mobility Can Do More,” Jan. 22 Xpress]. I have lived in Asheville for 12 years. Three years ago, I gave up my car. I was dependent upon taxis and the goodness of friends until I heard about Mountain Mobility. They won’t take me to the vets hospital where I had been doing volunteer work, but they take me to the grocery store, all of my medical appointments, to the post office, library and other necessary trips.

Of course I would like to go to the theater and many other places, but that is not its purpose. It is free, though they appreciate contributions.

I don’t know what I would do without it. I especially enjoy seeing places I never knew existed. People come to Asheville and pay good money for sightseeing tours.

    I absolutely agree with Ms. Harrison. It has been a necessity and a privilege to be able to use Mountain Mobility. Along with their new-ish program – R.I.D.E. (subsidized taxi service), I don’t feel as isolated as I would otherwise. Thank goodness for them!
