When it is no longer safe for a senior to drive, AAA recommends the use of supplemental transportation programs (STPs) for seniors. STPs are community-based transportation programs that complement or supplement existing transportation services and thus enable seniors to get where they need to go. STPs are important to senior mobility because they provide services that seniors need which public transit systems and paratransit are not able to provide. They are organized to meet those needs through trip chaining transportation escorts, door-through-door service, and numerous other means of personal support.
