Transportation preferences are changing for a new generation of Americans. The Millennial generation (approximately those born between 1977 and 2003) and future generations expect new and diverse shared mobility options. Millennials – and other generations – value transit because it allows them the luxury of working while in transit, staying connected with peers, relaxing, or exercising.
At the same time, Baby Boomers are reaching retirement. In Tarrant County, the population of older adults is projected to increase by over 185,000 residents – from just 9% of the population in 2010 to 17% of the population in 2030. This large population of older adults will require safe and affordable transit options to stay active and engaged in their communities and access daily services and medical appointments.
