Resources for Older Adults Who No Longer Drive
Affordable senior transportation is essential for maintaining independence and health. Without a reliable way to get to doctors' appointments or buy food, prescriptions and household supplies, seniors can’t realistically continue to remain in their homes as they age. Many have no family nearby to provide rides; others don't like to ask friends or relatives for assistance.
Social isolation is another big problem for seniors who don’t drive. It causes poorer quality of life and contributes to earlier death. Having access to reliable, affordable transportation keeps older adults connected with family, friends, and their community.
