Transportation and mobility
The transportation mode individuals 50 and older use has a strong influence on how much they get around and where they go. People's health, abilities, home location and income can influence their level of mobility.
The Aging Readiness Plan identifies five challenges that the aging population face in staying mobile within their communities.
- Neighborhood design
- Complete streets and trails
- Older driver safety
- Transit improvements
- Coordinated transportation services
Transportation and Mobility work committee
To combat these challenges in our communities, the Transportation/mobility work committee is working on the strategies listed in Chapter 3 - Transportation and Mobility (PDF) of the Aging Readiness Plan.
