The purpose of this project was to create a plan for a sustainable and accessible transportation service that will be available to members of a Beacon Hill-type Village in Long Beach, California. Specifically, the goals of this project were to analyze the existing literature on the transportation needs and options for older adults, examine current transportation services available in Long Beach, California, and develop the tools necessary for a Long Beach Village Transportation Program including a volunteer drivers’ manual, a plan to recruit volunteer drivers, and policies and procedures for the Long Beach Village office. A brochure for members to advertise the transportation program and an evaluation tool for members and drivers of the Long Beach Village to assess the effectiveness of the program were also included.
