Elderly Transportation for the Aging Population

The Baby Boomer generation is aging,which means that the demographics of the U.S. are changing as well. The following are a few facts and demographics about this older population (65 and older):

  • In the United States, there are over 46 million people over the age of 65. This portion of the population represents over 14% of the nation.

  • The older population is expected to continue growing to over 98 million by 2060.

  • Many counties across the U.S. are aging at a rapid pace.

  • Florida still has the highest percentage of older adults, with almost 20% of its population being 65 or older.

 

With an increased older population, there are subsequently increased health concerns and difficulties. Over 2 million people in this older generation use a wheelchair, and another 7 million use a cane, crutches, or a walker to assist them. With this knowledge, we know that there is a growing need for wheelchair transport services, and elderly travel assistance.
