Report: Seniors unlikely to use public transportation

Posted on August 1, 2014

ST. LOUIS — A recent study conducted by researchers at the Brown School in St. Louis, Mo., found that older adults, who are typically more prone to health issues that could prevent driving, were unlikely to use public transportation, reported the Science World Report.

Study findings revealed those 60 and older were less likely to use public transportation for five or more days within the last week when compared to those who were between the ages of 18 to 29, according to the report. Older individuals who were skeptical of public transit sited perceptions of speeding traffic and high crime as partial reasons for avoidance of this alternative method.
