This chapter talks about the role that mobility plays in helping older rural adults stay connected within their community. It defines mobility as the ability of a person to get access via movement to the desired facilities. The discussion looks at how personal resources of older adults affect the likelihood that they will have access to transportation. It then considers how the contextual factors might decrease or increase the vulnerability of those at risk for unmet needs, because they cannot independently meet their transportation needs.

Keywords:   mobility, personal resources, transportation, contextual factors, desired facilities
