A Scan of Transportation Options Available for Older People in Massachusetts

The Governor’s Council to Address Aging Issues in Massachusetts established workgroups to focus on several key areas: caregiving, employment, housing, and transportation. The transportation workgroup recognized that to make informed recommendations it needed a thorough understanding of the transportation services available to older people in Massachusetts. The first step was to conduct a scan of transportation services in the state and to learn more about national best practices.

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Boston Gerontology Institute conducted this scan during the spring of 2018 with the financial support of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation.
