"Beth and I talk and laugh about current news, family events, pre-retirement jobs, and more," says Miner, 70. "I love her stories about having lived in the Congo, Madagascar, and other countries. Where else can I learn so much in one short ride?"
"I can’t believe it’s only $20 a year. That is fantastic! It saves people on a fixed income a lot of money. I prefer Herndon Village Network to MetroAccess. "
"I know I can actively participate in different community organizations because I have access via Herndon Village Network. The drivers are delightful. They are always very helpful. They are people who could become very good friends. Herndon has become a town I don’t want to leave and Herndon Village Network has made that possible."
"My driver was very nice and took me to buy groceries and a new alarm clock and batteries. She was able to help me select a new pair of jeans and even underwear. Awesome service."
"Each person who drives you is like an old friend"
"I wanted to thank my driver for taking me to my appointment in Reston. I felt bad as the appointment ended up being over 2 hours. I knew it would be long, but not that long. Please give my driver an extra thanks for being so patient."
"There are a lot of adjectives that I could use to describe what I found in the bag wonderful for that mask for sure and wow off the toilet paper and paper towels and soap and you know, everything is great.
