Transportation

Transportation is a major factor that helps older adults continue living independently and links them to the services they need. Whether they drive their own cars or utilize a public bus, older adults depend on accessible transportation to get them everywhere from the grocery store to their doctor’s office.

Older adults who have difficulty getting around may find assistance from programs supported by the Older Americans Act (OAA). The OAA Supportive Services and Senior Centers Program funds a broad array of services including transportation assistance that enable seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible. To learn more about this program, visit the Supportive Services and Senior Centers Program page on the Administration on Aging website.
