Abstract
The primary objectives of the research were to explore the underlying factor structure of the 5 A’s (Availability, Acceptability, Accessibility, Adaptability, Affordability) of senior friendly transportation and to identify variables (e.g., sex, age, location, income, health status, etc.) associated with older adults’ ratings of importance of different features of each of the 5 A’s. Exploratory Factor Analyses revealed three underlying latent factors: Essential Features; Non-Essential Features; and Demand Response Scheduling. Composite measures were developed to represent the ratings of importance that older adults place upon different features of senior friendly transportation. Based on multiple regression analyses, significant variables associated with older adults’ ratings of importance included driving status, sex, age, and income with the patterns of findings varying across the three factors. These results can be used to inform on more responsive models of alternate transportation for seniors.
