Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Transportation Resources for Older Adults

FTA programs can fund full-time mobility managers with 80% covered by federal funds and 20% covered by local funds to help connect people to transportation options. FTA funds a national technical assistance center dedicated to encouraging the adoption of mobility management: National Center for Mobility Management

To assist with finding rural transit, the FTA created a new mapping tool to find rural, tribal, and older adult transportation programs across the U.S.: Community Transportation Database.

Public transit providers may not charge more than half of the peak fare for fixed route transit for Medicare cardholders with FTA half fare

FTA offers transportation coordination assistance; vehicle sharing and incidental use coordination opportunities, including for Meals on Wheels. Read more at Transportation Coordination | FTA (

Older Adult Initiatives

Food Insecurity

  • At the core of the Meals on Wheels service is a nutritious meal, companionship and a watchful eye on the health and safety of older people. For those who have trouble getting around, they bring the service to you. For those who can still venture out into their communities, they serve in gathering places.

Elder Justice

Reframing Aging

  • The Reframing Aging Initiative is designed to counter ageism by improving perspectives on what it means to age and how the older generation contributes to our society. The effect will be more supportive policies and programs.
