Mobility training courses are an excellent way to encourage the regular use of public transport among the elderly and to provide practical assistance in overcoming the barriers they may face.
By explaining the system and introducing the possibilities on offer, the courses encourage older people to expand their range of mobility, to retain their independence and to continue as active members of society. The courses can therefore make a huge contribution to improving quality of life.
The AENEAS project has produced a toolkit for public transport companies to provide training for older passengers on public transport use, which includes:
- information on how and why to plan a training course;
- details on the structure and content of such a course; and
- how to reach the target group.
