I used to participate in a carpooling program at my church in Hobart, going from Merrillville to our Hobart UU church, and back again, giving rides to two fellow church members. Well, I will no longer be able to offer rides starting in January, and they are both in a bit of a predicament. One does not have a car at all, and one is very elderly, and oftentimes unable to drive. The elderly woman lives in Town Center Retirement Community on 73rd and the other woman lives around Harrison and 54th, north of 61st.

I've only been here in Merrillville about 3 years, my husband has only been here for 5 years. My husband and I are both young and both have cars, so I have to admit, we've never become familiar with any public assistance or transportation services here, since we've never had the need. Furthermore, we both are much more familiar with Chicago stuff than Merrillville, considering my husband still works downtown, and I worked downtown for nearly 2 years of my past 3 years here. I mean, if someone came up to me asking me what train to take to get to Wrigley, I'd have an answer, but I'm at a complete loss for what's available in Merrillville locally.

What are some options for these two women? They've asked me if I knew of anyone else or any services that could help them find rides to church, but I was at a loss. Do you any of you have information you could share that I could pass along to them?
