It’s a challenge: Transportation in rural areas relies on groups

  • Date: 05/22/2022

About 155,000 people over the age of 65 live in rural Arizona – one in five of those individuals live alone, and one in 20 have no vehicle, according to a 2020 report published by Age Friendly Arizona.

The report reveals findings that seniors in the Green Valley area, and those who serve them, know all too well – even as it’s a tool for successful aging, reliable and affordable transportation for older adults can be difficult to find, and it can be even tougher to secure in rural areas.
