Transit celebrates ‘Seniors in Motion Day’

Posted on October 5, 2005

A large collection of public transportation systems are sponsoring "Seniors in Motion Day" today (Oct. 6). The nationwide initiative showcases new and innovative ways public transit can meet the mobility needs of the growing senior population.

Transit agencies are participating in this inaugural event by offering special services, guided trips for new riders, complimentary rides, refreshments and contest prizes.

Seniors in Motion Day is devoted to helping elderly Americans feel secure, comfortable and independent on buses and trains.

"As a larger percentage of Americans grow older and live longer, we need to work fast to find new ways to provide essential transportation choices," said Bill Millar, president of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). "Public transportation will be called upon to do more, and we will be prepared.”
