With the growing demographics of our 65+ and 85+ population, transportation needs are increasing for these older adults and their caregivers. Lack of access to mobility options has a profound impact on older adults’ quality of life. Senior transportation must recognize the importance of quality-of-life issues and move beyond the limited goal of ensuring access only for those trips viewed as a necessity. Social, recreation, leisure, civic engagement and other aspects of connection should be valued as essential components of community living and opportunities should exist for older adults to access transportation to these types of activities as well as to the doctor and grocery store.
