Transportation Use in Community-Dwelling Older Adults: Association with Participation and Leisure Activities

This paper investigates the relationship between primary transportation mode and participation of elderly people living in the community. The study used 90 participants aged 65 and older, and they were classified based upon their primary mode of transportation. The Craig Handicap Assessment and Reporting Technique and the Nottingham Leisure Questionnaire were used to measure levels of participation by the study subjects in the community. Results indicated that drivers, public transport users, and walkers had higher levels of participation in the community than those who use taxis or adapted transport.
