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 their first interviews, their second interviews confirmed and expanded on the 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.
