AARP Livable Communities has released the fourth book in their “Roadmap to Livability” Series that focuses on assessing and addressing transportation issues in a community or region seeking to become more Age-Friendly.
The series of checklists and guides is intended to help gather stakeholders and evaluate the accessibility, safety and reliability of local transportation options before creating a series of strategies for improvement.
As a complimentary piece, AARP has also announced a “Walk Audit” Toolkit to help Age-Friendly Communities assess and enhance walkability.
WalkBoston, a member of the Healthy Aging Collaborative’s Executive Committee and Advisory Council, has a wealth of resources to help communities go further in addressing walkability and pedestrian safety. Those interested in local projects in Massachusetts and working with WalkBoston can contact them here.
