Affordable transportation is a critical tool for aging with dignity, staying active in the community, and maintaining independence. Yet, as life expectancy increases, many older adults eventually lose the ability to navigate their surroundings by automobile. According to the American Public Transportation Association, “Compared with those who still drive, older non-drivers make 15% fewer trips to the doctor, 59% fewer shopping trips and visits to restaurants, and 65% fewer trips for social, family, and religious activities.” For too many older adults, decreased mobility means greater social isolation, a predictor of poorer health and a diminished quality of life. According to the Administration for Community Living, “Isolation and loneliness are known to be associated with higher risks of chronic disease, heart disease, depression, and anxiety, even dementia and Alzheimer’s.”
