Key Issue: Transportation

The U.S, and specifically Los Angeles, are deeply influenced by car and automobile culture which dictates the way we get around the city to events, friends, or appointments. However, driving safely becomes more challenging as we grow older because of late life transitions that may increase risk for chronic conditions, diseases, and disability. The loss of the ability to drive significantly impacts our sense of freedom, autonomy, and independence in our lives; and can potentially exacerbate mental and physical health conditions.

For these reasons, Westside Pacific Villages takes pride in providing WPV RIDES, its transportation service, funded in part by the Federal Transit Administration through LA Metro, which allows WPV members to ride together in a designated van to common destinations on the Westside; or be driven by WPV’s pre-screened volunteers from the local area.
