Introduction to Senior Transportation: Enhancing Community Mobility and Transportation Services

This book concentrates on the mobility needs of older adults. Extending beyond the coverage given in previous gerontology textbooks, it enables students and practitioners to understand the problems that older adults face in their transition from driving to using transit. It considers the physical and cognitive restrictions of older transit passengers, the range of available transportation, the challenges faced by transit providers in supporting the needs of seniors, and the kinds of transportation that best meet those needs. The book complements introductory courses in human development and aging and will enhance curricula in social sciences as well as in traffic safety, transit, and community planning.
