In an Age-Friendly community, people can get around the community conveniently and safely for health, business, and social needs, or to travel to other communities for services such as health or business. (Think of those who are unable to drive or have varying abilities.) This also includes such things as accessible bus shelters, monitored disabled parking, etc.
