Transportation is vital to the independence of older adults. Without it, accessing healthcare, food and pharmacy, shopping, and social interaction are virtually impossible. Tennessee has a robust public transportation system available in all 95 counties, but many older adults report a need for more personalized door-through-door transportation that is affordable, accessible, available, dependable and safe.
