What is the Older Persons Transport and Mobility Plan 2018-2022?
The Older Persons Transport and Mobility Plan explores the interaction between mobility and transport as our customers age.
This means delivering more transport options for older persons so that they can remain independent and connected to their communities, especially when they are no longer able to drive.
The Older Persons Transport and Mobility Plan takes a ‘whole of life’ approach by looking at a person’s changing needs as they move from active ageing to older age.
The Older Persons Transport and Mobility Plan has four broad outcomes:
- keeping active and connected with my community – older customers are encouraged and supported to use walking, cycling, driving and public transport
- staying safe – older customers are confident accessing and using transport to get around
- being informed – older customers have access to the information they need about transport services
- maintaining independence – older customers actively plan for their future transport needs and have suitable transport alternatives when they are not able to drive.
