MassMobility Offering Guidance on Helping Older Adults to Find and Use Transportation Options

Staff of Councils on Aging (COAs), Aging Service Access Points (ASAPs), and other aging services providers are invited to a presentation on tools to help older adults find and use local transportation options, as well as strategies organizations can use to fill gaps in the transportation network.

The presentation will be offered by MassMobility, an initiative of the state Executive Office of Health and Human Services.

  • Thursday, July 25, 10am-11:30am
  • Hosted by Mystic Valley Elder Services, 300 Commercial St. #19, Malden, main conference room
  • Directions: 0.7 mile walk from Malden Center MBTA orange line station; free parking available

The Governor’s Council to Address Aging recommended making better use of existing transportation resources and providing training for aging services providers on helping older adults transition to alternatives to driving. MassMobility is partnering with the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, MassDOT, the Barr Foundation, and other Council members to implement these recommendations. In addition to offering live presentations, we will also record the training in video form. Please join us on July 25 as we pilot this presentation. Attendees will have the opportunity to share feedback for us to incorporate in the recorded version.

All are welcome. The presentation is targeted to frontline staff members who work directly with older adults. We hope you can join us!
