All senior citizens share in a strong desire for independence. However, as human beings grow older, this longing for independence can become increasingly difficult to fulfill, especially after a person becomes too old to continue driving safely. Luckily, however, there are plenty of transport options available to seniors aside from driving their own vehicle. Some of these options include pedestrian travel, traveling by bicycle, taking advantage of public transportation options, traveling by train, using a cab or ride hailing service, being transported by friends, family, volunteers, or medical services, and, finally, self-driving cars.
- As human beings grow older, it becomes increasingly difficult to operate motored vehicles safely
- Many places offer strong public transportation infrastructure that seniors can take advantage of, other otherwise have nearby cab services available
- Technology has helped to foster independence for elderly people thanks to the proliferation of ride hailing apps and the coming innovation of self driving vehicles
“Just like family caregivers, seniors often have many places to go each day.”
