Commission on Aging April speaker to focus on C-TRAN services
Vancouver, Wash. – The ability to travel whenever we want is a freedom that most of us enjoy. When driving is no longer an option, older adults need an alternative way to get around, maintain their independence and continue their daily routines. Public transit is one of those alternatives.
Learn about the services offered by C-TRAN and how it plans to meet the growing transportation needs of our community at the Tuesday, April 17, meeting of the Commission on Aging.
The 4:30 p.m. meeting will be in the sixth-floor Hearing Room of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. It is open to the public.
Shawn Donaghy, C-TRAN’s chief executive officer, will discuss the agency’s current services and programs, the challenges transit providers face, and highlight possible ways to increase both the safety and mobility of older people who use their services.
The April 17 discussion is the second meeting in a year-long series focused on transportation, especially for people 60 and older. Transportation is the hallmark of a livable community, allowing residents of all ages and abilities to connect with others and maintain independence.
