Despite the reality of older adults living many years after driving cessation, few prepare for the eventuality; empirically, planning for a nondriving future has not been directly quantified or explored. This study quantifies (1) the extent of current drivers' planning; (2) specific planning behaviors; (3) beliefs about benefits of planning; (4) drivers' intention to plan more for future transportation needs; and (5) group differences associated with planning.
