The growing ageing population means that there is a continued need to help older people to age well and attain a better quality of life through local services.

Transport solutions for older people is an information resource for local authorities. It aims to signpost transport planners to existing resources, information and practices, with examples of tailored solutions around the country. It promotes a range of measures aimed at helping to overcome the transport barriers experienced by older people.
