n4a's Senior Transportation Reauthorization Priorities
The Senior Transportation Task Force (STTF) sent House and Senate Authorizers a letter outlining transportation program priorities for consideration during upcoming surface transportation reauthorization debates.
These priorities include:
- increasing funding for transit and transportation programs aimed at helping older adults maintain independence and mobility in their communities;
- boosting technical assistance for senior transit programs and sourcing this funding from the Highway Trust Fund;
- studying to better understand gaps in transportation services for older adults;
- and better integrating transportation and transit planning into broader community and Aging Network planning efforts.
