Older Drivers and Transportation Network Companies: Investigating Opportunities for Increased Safety and Improved Mobility Grant uri icon


  • For older populations, Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) have the potential to provide enhanced mobility for a range of transportation needs, including healthcare appointments, necessary errands, and social opportunities. As it is well-documented that older drivers have a higher potential for crashes, there are significant potential safety benefits. This project will assess the potential of TNCs to enhance safety by decreasing the number of older drivers on the roadways while increasing their mobility options.
