Tyee Poll: If and When You Can’t Drive, How Will You Get Around?

This week, Tyee’s Christopher Cheung reported on the difficulties that seniors face when trying to get around, especially in suburban sprawl. As one ages it becomes progressively harder to drive and get things done.

In B.C., more than a quarter of seniors 65 and over do not have a driver’s license. Looking at seniors 85 and over, the share of non-drivers is larger: 56 per cent do not have a license.

These folks have to look at alternatives, ranging from public transit to volunteer driving services. But even then, these options don’t suit every senior..

We’re wondering how our readers plan to get around without a car in the future. If and when the time comes to give up your license, how do you think you’d get around?

Or if you don’t currently drive, tell us more about how you get around now and your future transit plans down below.

* Please note that all poll answers will be publicly viewable, but anonymous.
