Ageing and mobility

Understanding the important role that older people play in communities and how mobility policy can support that contribution.

Transport policy and practice must increasingly respond to the ageing of the population.

The theme examines the mobility of older persons as a product of individual life courses and aspirations, seeking to understand the important role that older people play in communities and how mobility policy can support that contribution. It also addresses the needs of those for whom independent physical mobility has become problematic.
