Mobility and Access Priority Group Projects
The Mobility and Access Priority Group has completed several projects designed to work toward ensuring all older residents in Larimer County have access to key services and quality of life opportunities.
In July, 2017, the Larimer County Senior Transportation Needs Report was completed. The report is the result of an extensive needs assessment of senior transportation in unincorporated Larimer County. A small working group has been formed to further research and define the details of recommendations from the report, and to focus on integrating transportation providers and services in the county. These recommendations will be presented to the County Commissioners. The Mobility & Access priority group will be involved throughout this phase and will have input into the implementation phase as well. This report can be viewed here.
Participants ride the Bustang to downtown Denver, spend a few hours having lunch, shopping, sightseeing and then return in the afternoon. This event is offered to people who have never ridden Bustang before and would like to learn more about this service. For the 2018 travel training report, click here.

As part of our commitment to our county and to the National Network of Age-Friendly Communities, we have submitted our new Age-Friendly plan to AARP. We are now recruiting volunteer teams to help design and implement new projects from that plan. Those projects are described here.
