Affordable and accessible public and volunteer transportation programs is key to aging in place safely and independently. Some communities have created transportation resources guides that include information about public and private options. Other have created volunteer programs that provide rides to where people need to go and may offer help with, for example, shopping or getting in and out of a building.
What Windham Residents Say
“ We are too spread out to have efficient public transportation some kind of ride program would work better especially for events.”
“ Busses and shuttles are necessary and vital to all ages!”
“ My main concern is access to transportation once my husband and I are unable to drive, common pick up locations are not suitable for seniors who love away from the business district of Windham…”
“ Windham has shopping but you can’t walk to it. I am without a driver’s license so am stuck waiting for family to drive me.”
