Driving represents the freedom to go where you want when you want, and many children look forward to it as a perk of adulthood. Unfortunately, older adults who wish not to drive and/or no longer drive may feel like children again since the freedom they once enjoyed has been taken away. All older adults deserve the right to travel as they please without getting behind the wheel themselves. This discussion will cover public transportation options and resources for older adults in Chicago, making it easy to find safe transportation to travel safely without compromising their own safety or the well-being of others. Topics include: Reduced Fare/Ride Free programs, ADA Paratransit, the Taxi Access Program (TAP), and how to apply for each program in addition to using the Trip Planning function.
