Abstract

An aging society requires a fresh look on the problem of older people mobility. It is not easy as they are not forming a heterogeneous group - differing in preferences, life styles or health status. It is also so far a most neglected and affected by discrimination social group. This should change as it is forecasted that in 20 years older people are likely to represent even 50% of all public transport passengers. The biggest challenge so far is related to the fact that older people against expectations are in majority car users.
