Inside E Street

The Future of Home Sweet Home (Part 2): Transportation

An increase in older Americans deciding to 'age-in-place' has left many communities adapting to their ever-changing needs

More and more Americans are choosing to retire close to home, and with that choice comes the added concern of mobility. Limited funding from the federal government is forcing state and local governments, as well as many nonprofits, to come up with ways to help keep citizens on the move.

In the second part of the Inside E Street series, "The Future of Home Sweet Home," we take a look at this issue with guests: James Corless, the director of Transportation for America, and Katherine Freund, the founder of the Independent Transportation Network.

Corless discusses the current state of the U.S. transportation system and what the future has in store, and Freund details her group's innovative nationwide service, which is helping many Americans get around.
