AARP – Older Adults, New Mobility, and Automated Vehicles: A Framework for Harnessing Emerging Technology for Individual and Societal BenefitDate Published: February 23, 2021
The Older Adults, New Mobility and Automated Vehicles report is a collaborative effort between AARP Public Policy Institute, RAND Corporation, the Urbanism Next Center at the University of Oregon, and various subject matter experts which discusses the key factors relating to mobility of older adults and emerging mobility options.
From the research developed, a framework of key factors relating to mobility for older adults is presented in this paper. The framework is intended to guide planning for new mobility and AVs, and ensure older adults’ needs are considered and met. Inclusive planning is brought up, focusing on the importance of engaging older adults in discussions regarding AVs and new mobility.
Transit Planning 4 All’s Technical Expert Panel member Jana Lynott, of AARP Public Policy Institute, served as project manager of the report.
