The meaning of driving for older adults was investigated using qualitative in-depth interviews. Eleven adults, currently driving and residing in suburban low-income housing, were interviewed twice. After verbatim transcription of the first interview, the second interview confirmed and expanded data. Six unique themes emerged: driving integrated into identity, driving is meaningful and important, barriers to driving, supports for driving, driving cessation, and alternative transportation options.
