Access to transportation is important because it empowers older adults to maintain their independence. Transportation opportunities for older adults may take different forms, including driving, public transportation, ride-share service, or shuttle buses. This report discusses public transportation access and perceived transportation barriers. Key findings include in Indianapolis, approximately 76,000 people age 65 or older live too far away from an IndyGo stop to likely use transit. That represents nearly two thirds of people age 65 or older in Indianapolis. The report addresses public transit accessibility for the older population in Central Indiana and the state. This partnership includes The Polis Center, and the Central Indiana Senior Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
