The Fairfax 50+ Community Action Plan Initiatives: Transportation
Northern Virginia Rides (NV Rides)
Support the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia's effort to provide a ride scheduler system for community-based organizations. Through partnering with multiple nonprofits across the county, this program will increase the capacity of volunteer organizations to arrange rides for older adults unable to drive themselves.
Senior Mobility Fair
Promote safe driving and the transition from driving to volunteer and public transportation through sponsorship of an Annual Senior Mobility Fair and a Channel 16 Mature Living program to educate older adults about transportation options.
Partnership to Provide Medical Transportation
Ensure that older adults have access to quality and timely health care, particularly after a recent hospitalization. A work group of public, private, and nonprofit representatives together with hospital representatives will develop a plan to offer subsidized medical transportation to Medicare patients following a hospital discharge.
Universal Real-Time Online Transit Data Portal
Support a Northern Virginia Universal Real-Time Online Transit Data Portal that provides information about routes, schedules and travel conditions.
Mobility Management Program
Establish a mobility management program in Fairfax County to improve coordination of human services transportation and access to affordable, accessible, and safe public transportation for all residents.
