Getting out and about is important to older people’s independence, access to services and social networks. Transport is a key factor in preventing social exclusion and enabling older people to play a role in their communities. This paper draws on research with older people aged 65-84 conducted over a two-year period. It looks at changes in older people’s needs and experiences of public transport, car driving and mobility scooter use.
