Promoting Healthy Aging through Mobility and Transportation
Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative
People of all ages need access to transportation options to get to medical appointments and to acquire medication and nutritious food, but also to facilitate meaningful interactions with friends and family and acquire opportunities to contribute through volunteering or work experiences. For these reasons and more, Age-Friendly Communities are paying attention to transportation and working to improve mobility.
