Creating Age-Friendly Streets Webinar Series, Part 2
It’s widely known that the US population is aging. But how do we prepare our local transportation networks to support the mobility needs of older adults and keep them safe? This webinar series will offer key principles for considering the safety and mobility needs for older adults.
Part 2 of the series will offer strategies for improving transportation networks to prioritize the safety and mobility of older adults. Panelists from AARP will share recommendations for planning and developing transit networks and prioritizing transit-oriented development. Representatives from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will share examples of design and engineering strategies for improving safety and comfort for older pedestrians.
Following their presentations, panelists will respond to questions from the audience.
