13 Sep The Need for Non-Medical Transportation for the most vulnerables
At over 19 percent of its population, Florida has the highest percentage of elderly (65 years of age and above) of any state in the US. Unfortunately, its public transportation system is focused on urban areas and is not interconnected, making it difficult for people of any age to travel among various areas. As it pertains to the elderly population, this presents a unique problem when it comes to finding transportation to their doctor’s office, pharmacy, nursing home, or clinic. The dependability of public transport itself depends on the accessibility of its facilities: having to travel several miles to get to the nearest bus stop defeats the purpose of the bus stop. Unfortunately, friends and family are not always readily available to help.
