Mobility and welfare of the older people – development, travel needs and policy formation (English)
Abstract [no]

Et stort flertall av eldre sier at transport er helt sentralt for deres velferd og livskvalitet. Likevel er det mange eldre i Norge i dag som har et utilfredsstillende transporttilbud. Ikke alle har mulighet til eller ønsker å kjøre bil. Mange bor slik til at kollektivtransport ikke er et alternativ. Holdeplassen er ofte for langt unna og tilbudet lite tilpasset. TT-ordningen er relativt dårlig kjent, og et flertall av dem som har TT-kort synes ikke at det dekker reisebehovet. Med en økende gruppe av eldre i samfunnet er det viktig å tilrettelegge transporttilbudet for dem. Dette medvirker til at flere eldre kan være selvhjulpne og bo lenger i eget hjem, og bidrar til bedret velferd og livskvalitet.

Abstract [en]

A majority of older people state that access to transport is essential to their welfare and quality of life. Nevertheless many older people in Norway today are facing an unsatisfactory transport supply. Not all of them want to or are able to use a car, and many live in areas with low public transport quality. The knowledge of the Special Transport Service is low, and only one third of those who use it state that their transport need is met. With an increasing share of older people it is important to develop a transport policy adjusted to this change. It will mean greater independence for older people and help them to stay longer in their homes, contributing to improved welfare and quality of life.
