CHOICES FOR OUR FUTURE: FINDING TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES FOR AN AGING POPULATION. A FINAL REPORT TO THE WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE ON AGING

For an aging population, transportation is one of the defining characteristics of a quality of life. The contributions of older persons to the nation was the foundation of the 1995 White House Conference on Aging. The importance of access and mobility to older persons was the basis for the transportation resolutions adopted by the White House. The message participants presented to the White House Conference is that transportation is needed to ensure all of the people have an opportunity to contribute to and benefit from the nation. The purpose of this report is to examine the transportation resolutions and how they might be achieved. The post-White House Conference on Aging activities were directed toward implementation of the adopted resolutions. Three elements formed the basis for sponsored events and this report: public policy formation, the role of the private sector, and community demonstration of the resolutions.
