Access to adequate transportation is often the major factor that allows seniors to live independently at home. It is the connection to vital activities such as going to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and visiting family and friends. It is also the link to recreation, volunteering, employment, and other activities that contribute to quality of life. According to the Administration on Aging, two-thirds of older adults who stop driving say it is because of physical impairments. One-third of older adults who do not drive rely on family and friends for their transportation.
