How easily can older adults and residents with disabilities get around in Sonoma County? How often do they forgo important trips because they lack transportation? What are the local transportation challenges, successes and gaps in services?
Older adults age 60+ and residents with disabilities are invited to discuss these questions and share their experiences at an upcoming meeting in Rohnert Park hosted by the Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging (AAA):
Wed., March 25, 1:30-3:30 p.m., Rohnert Park Senior Center, 6800 Hunter Drive, Rohnert Park
The community’s input will become part of the Sonoma County Connected Communities Transportation Study. To register, call (707) 565-5903 or email email@example.com. For future discussion group dates, visit the Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging website.
In the 2016-2020 AAA Community Report, 57 percent of Sonoma County older adults and persons with disabilities stated they are concerned about access to local transportation, says County of Sonoma Adult and Aging Division Director Paul Dunaway. It is vital to get input from older adults and people with disabilities to plan a transportation system that makes it easier to get to health appointments, the grocery store and community events. Better transportation systems also allow better access to job options and financial opportunities for all residents. 707-565-8085
