In partnership with Marin Transit and other community agencies, the Marin County Health and Human Services Department, Division of Aging and Adult Services has sponsored the Marin Senior Mobility Action and Implementation Plan to identify measures that can be taken by Marin County and transportation agencies to support the mobility of the growing older population beyond their driving years. The Plan is a joint effort to keep older people safe and connected to their communities as problems related to aging make it harder for them to get around. The report, in two volumes, identifies the major gaps in transportation services to older adults in Marin County and develops specific strategies to close those gaps.
The first volume is the Existing Conditions Report, which looks at current and future demographics in Marin, describes the current state of senior transportation, presents examples of best practices in senior mobility, reports on outreach activities conducted as part of this project, and identifies transportation gaps in Marin.
The second volume, the “Action and Implementation Plan”, discusses in detail strategies proposed to meet the transportation needs of older adults in Marin County, identified through the research and outreach conducted for this project.
