Senior Mobility: 5 Alternative Transportation Options


Public Transportation

Take buses, trains, or trams. Senior discounts or services make public transit inexpensive and accessible in many locations.


Ridesharing Services

Call a nearby driver using Uber or Lyft. These simple door-to-door services let elders travel on their own timetable.


Community Transportation Programs

Many towns provide senior transportation. These initiatives provide door-to-door medical, food, and social transportation.


Volunteer Driver Programs

Find local volunteer driver programs. Volunteers help elders who cannot drive in these initiatives. Nonprofits or senior centers may provide similar programs.


Walking or Bicycling

If the senior can, walk or bike short distances. Walking gives elders fitness and outside time. In locations with bike lanes and trails, biking is pleasurable and ecologically beneficial.
