“I quit driving when I turned 80, my eyesight was bad and I didn't want to endanger others or myself on the road. So this gives me a safer way of getting around. All of my kids live out of the area, so without anyone else around at home, it gets too quiet in the house. I like getting out.”

Charlotte, age 87, Lift Line participant
