HEALTH CARE REFORM: AN RX FOR COMMUNITY TRANSIT?

Transportation has often been an afterthought in federal health care provision. This article looks at today's health care reform plans and assesses how transportation industry might fare under both present and proposed policies. The authors emphasize that any attempt to provide long-term care should include transportation not only as a specific service but to bolster all other components of community-based care. The article also states that in a comprehensive, regionally based health care system, an allied community public, private and nonprofit transportation network should provide the vital links between people and medical services, as any health care system is of absolutely no use to people unable to access and benefit from the services.
