The ChORUS Older Driver Transportation Planning Tool guides you through the steps of developing your transportation plan. Starting early allows you to map out your needs, identify and explore your options for alternate transportation modes in your area, and plan for continuing a full and active life whether you are driving or not. Be sure to talk with your doctor to understand how changes in your medical conditions and/or medications might impact driving. Also, family members, friends, and caregivers can help you think about how to best meet all your transportation needs.
