Introduction. Elderly age often means a progressive loss of independence and mobility. Research has shown that this lack of mobility has a detrimental effect on health and well-being. It is estimated that 25% of Vermonters will be ?65 years by 2030. Thus, the rapid rise in the elderly population will translate into a greater need for reliable transportation. We sought to explore if and how lack of transportation compromised areas of seniors’ daily lives.
