Staying Mobile
for Non-Drivers

COUNCIL ON AGING - ORANGE COUNTY

Ensuring that we remain mobile and active in our
community is one of the top priorities as we age. There
are many transportation options that allow non-drivers
to still maintain an active, engaging, and fulfilling life.
Seniors and transportation providers alike agree that
socialization is often a central purpose of transportation! In fact, many say the journey is often more important than the destination. Giving up your keys does
not mean giving up your independence! Whether you
are looking for transportation or you are a caregiver in
search of transportation, use the following 5 A's Guidelines:
n Availability: Transportation is available when
needed (e.g., days, evenings and weekends).
n Acceptability: Standards for cleanliness (bus is
clean), safety (stops in safe area), and courteous
service delivery.
n Accessibility: Transportation can be used (e.g.,
van comes to the door, bus stop is reachable, & vehicle is easy to enter).
n Adaptability: Transportation can be adjusted to
meet special needs (e.g., wheelchairs)
n Affordability: Fees are affordable (cost less than

driving a car), or vouchers help defray out-ofpocket expenses.
Additional Considerations before deciding on a transportation option:
n What is the service area?
n Is there a limitation on distance?
n Will insurance pay for rides provided by the service?
n Is there an evaluation that must take place prior to
the first ride?
n How far in advance must reservations be made?
n Are door-through-door, door-to door or curb-to
curb services provided?
n If other passengers are riding, what is the maximum length of time of the ride while others are
being picked up/dropped off?
n If a rider is in a wheelchair, do they stay in their
wheelchair, or are they transferred to a seat during
the ride?
n Is there an escort or attendant in the vehicle with
the driver?
n Can a family member serve as an escort? If so, is
there an extra cost?
