Getting Around When You No Longer Drive

January 28, 2015

Jim MiIller at Savvy Senior recently received a question from a reader about transportation options for her elderly mother who will soon be giving up driving.

In his Huffington Post article Miller gives an overview of some of the available options: 

  • Family & Friends 
  • Local Transportation Programs
  • Demand Response Services
  • Taxi or Car Service
  • Private Program Services
  • Mass Transit
  • Hire Someone
  • The Rides in Sight national toll-free call center at 855-607-4337 
  • The Eldercare Locator (800-677-1116), which will direct you to her area agency on aging for assistance.
