Over 15 million Americans lack adequate access to transportation. This means 1 in 20 of our neighbors and friends face barriers to accessing social determinants of health, including healthcare, education, groceries, medicine, and employment. Without access to these, individuals lack economic freedom and medical choice, have more untreated conditions, poorer nutrition, and a range of other challenges, which together can reduce life expectancy by decades. Feonix provides reliable and affordable transportation, with which Americans can connect to the lifeline of their community to live a healthy, quality life.
HELP US TRANSFORM LIVES TODAY
TRANSPORTATION PLAYS AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN EACH OF THESE ASPECTS OF A HEALTHY, FULFILLING LIFE.
Approximately 5.8 million people in the US experience delayed medical appointments annually due to a lack of transportation.
Lack of transportation creates educational disparity for minorities, students with disabilities, and low-income families.
Food deserts are expanding in rural and urban environments across the country.
As many as 84% of respondents listed a lack of transportation access as the primary reason for unemployment in one recent study.
45% of Americans live outside of the service area for public transportation systems and therefore experience transportation challenges that significantly affect their lives.
Social isolation contributes to long term health concerns. The “loneliness epidemic” can be as damaging to a person’s health as smoking 15 cigarettes per day.
HOW WE STARTED
Established in 2018, we strive to be a leader in identifying mobility solutions for rural and urban communities. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we have guided local leaders as they develop community-led strategies to address long-term mobility challenges that threaten cherished communities. Rooted in Mobility as a Service (MaaS), we help communities and partners integrate emerging technologies into local transportation ecosystems.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
We support local communities across the country as they work to eliminate transportation inequities for their neighbors. We address threats to the social determinants of health (economic stability, education, health care, housing, social/community context) by ensuring that a lack of transportation does not stand in the way of security across these areas of living. We are growing through new partnerships and programs. Do you know of an opportunity to improve systemic transportation access in your community?
