What Subsidies Are Available for Elderly Transportation Services?

The Older Americans Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act enforce transportation subsidies for the elderly in local communities. These include local, public and paratransit systems.

The Administration on Aging oversees and directs a variety of programs for the elderly to enforce the Older Americans Act and Americans With Disability Act. The programs promote overall well being and allow senior citizens to live independently for as long as possible. They provide services to assist senior citizens and their families find subsidies for transportation through states and municipalities. Each township or country generally has an office solely dedicated to senior citizens, and it can provide help to find subsidies for transportation and other support services.
