People of different lifestages use transport differently. For example, young people often use public transport to get to and from school or college and as part of their social life. Older people oftne use public transport to sustain their daily lifestyles by using it to travel to shopping, hairstylists, church and other places of importance to them. Public transport is also used by older people to sustain their social lives and allows them a sense of mobility and independence. Car and bike usage are other types of transport that can gain importance for people of different ages. Understand the relationship between people and their modes of transport is crucial to helping mainstream age concerns into research and policy on this topic.
