TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 168: Travel Training for Older Adults, Part I: A Handbook presents a comprehensive roadmap for designing a travel training program to meet the mobility needs of older persons. The Handbook, Part I, addresses the primary components of an effective travel training program and provides an extensive set of guidelines for transit agencies and human services providers on how to build and implement training programs to help older adults who are able to use fixed-route public transit.
The supplemental research report, Part II, reviews the research plan that produced this report as well as the case studies used to formulate the overall strategic program.
An Executive Summary brochure summarizes the highlights of TCRP Report 168, Parts I and II.
