What happens to older adults who can no longer drive? Older adults are continuously confronted with challenges and conflicts concerning transportation, such as whether to use public transportation, how to understand the new technology, and simply how to continue to drive safely. This volume examines many of the issues faced by policymakers, transportation officials, vehicle manufacturers, health and human services professionals, and aging adults themselves, as the largest generation prepares to drive into late adulthood.

Comprehensive and well-organized, this book introduces the problem of aging America and transportation, describes the transportation infrastructure, explains the conflicts of the new, older driver, and discusses the innovations that will significantly impact the future of mobility for all older adults.

Not only does the book pose key questions and concerns that older adults will face in the coming decades, but it proposes practical solutions and strategies for keeping these seniors active and mobile.
