What is Newtrax?
Newtrax is a nonprofit collaborative organization that provides daily transportation from home to work and back for over 600 adults with disabilities in the Northeast Metro. We own a fleet of more than 40 vehicles, most of which have a lift-gate feature. We run our own dispatch center and maintenance garage. We reach out to help coordinate events with other employers, area faith communities, senior living communities and group homes where transportation is a barrier. In addition, we offer Information Technology, Financial Analysis, and other back-office services.
Who is Newtrax?
Newtrax was founded by member organizations Merrick, Inc. and PAI, Inc. Both are non-profit organizations that provide vocational and life enrichment services to adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Most importantly, we are professionals who are passionate about removing barriers to under-served populations.
Why is Newtrax Needed?
In 2011, leaders at Merrick and PAI identified that the process they used to transport clients wasn’t as efficient and effective as it could be. In fact, both organizations would often go to the same home and pick up people at about the same time to bring them to program sites less than 2 miles apart. Now with Newtrax, one vehicle arrives at the home and transports clients to both organizations.
What Difference is Newtrax Making?
Thanks to Newtrax, there is less local road congestion, reduced vehicle emissions and reduced costs for the organizations we serve. This means that there are more resources to fund new and innovative programs at Merrick and PAI that directly impact the clients who need them.
What’s Next for Newtrax?
Today we are expanding our transportation services beyond our current member organizations and serve our communities in added ways. From providing services within our senior communities to helping hospitals and healthcare facilities coordinate transportation to transitional care facilities, we are adding valuable options.
