New information will be added over time.

TRANSPORTATION

Safe, accessible and affordable modes of public and private transportation that allow residents to move within and outside of the community with independence and flexibility.

Transportation is a complex issue and frequently a top challenge for any community working to become age-friendly. The ability to get around is closely tied to well-being in other areas of life. Yet we live in a car-centric society, and most of us will outlive our ability or desire to drive by 7 to 10 years. Age-Friendly Maple Grove is working to better understand the transportation needs of older residents, and move toward the creation of more and improved options.
