For Provider Participants: Policy

transportation volunteers without a vehicle

Many older adults can use public transportation if they have someone to accompany them. With help from volunteer escort, older person can go to medical appointments, run errands. This idea can be easily adapted to veterans traveling to medical appointments.

Recommendation: Encourage the creation of volunteer escort programs; encourage transit providers to give free ride to escort/assistant. This kind of program exists in both urban and rural areas.
