COG Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program 

The Enhanced Mobility program aims to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout the region by removing barriers to transportation services and expanding transportation mobility options available. 

Getting You Connected: CHV and Transportation Resources

Since 2017, Capitol Hill Village has been working with other DC Villages on a range of transportation issues to increase seniors’ mobility, improve roadway safety, and build community members’ awareness and knowledge about transportation options and benefits.

Why Does Transportation Matter?

Nationally, access to transportation is a top concern of older adults. CHV seeks to motivate and educate older adults about transportation options that serve their needs, now and in the future. In partnership with other DC Villages, CHV is helping to increase senior mobility and access to transportation information and services.
