SURTC researcher Jeremy Mattson presented findings from a recent study on travel behavior and mobility of transportation disadvantaged populations, specifically older adults and people with disabilities. The study examined 2009 National Household Travel Survey data on driving, trip frequency, staying in the same place all day or week, miles driven per year, mode choice, use of public transportation, trip purpose, trip distance, and issues and concerns regarding transportation. Differences between 2001 and 2009 were documented to identify trends in travel behavior.
