[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] For aging Americans, one of the most pressing concerns when it comes to their autonomy is transportation. But is this a mobility, economic, or social issue? Or a combination of all three? In this episode, Dennis Wisco and Rudy Salo address the biggest problems faced by senior citizens on the move, like LAX-it, rent spikes in transit-oriented development areas, and how "Dial-A-Ride" senior ridesharing paved the way for today's most popular taxi alternatives. "Freedom is Movement. Can I go from here to there safely? That's it. That's freedom." - Rudy Salo Every year, over 600,000 seniors are forced to give up their driver's licenses. This can be attributed to a variety of factors, the frontrunner being that many seniors age out of eligibility for insurance coverage. This decreased autonomy in movement prompts many seniors to consider relocating to senior living communities, or cities. However, even after a decade of public transit development initiatives, LA's public transit system remains largely inaccessible to the community members who need it most. As the "Baby Boomer" generation comes into retirement age, the concerns of seniors are projected to shape the business models for the mobility of people and goods for the future more than ever before. Tune in to this episode to hear how policies like California S.B. 50, accessible metro stations, and autonomous vehicles are opening doors for seniors on the move.
