Project Title

Mobility opportunities among older people living in Sweden's large metropolitan regions: With a focus on public transport

Project Description

The focus of this project is on potential and realised mobility among the young-old (within the age group 65-79) living in Sweden's large metropolitan regions: Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. The main focus is on mobility opportunities and actual trips that are supported by the public transport system, and factors which result in different kinds of use (and non-use) of the public transport system. The focus is not restricted to just geographical accessibility. Individual accessibility is also an inherent part of the project: can an individual travel when and where he/she would like? The most important concern as part of this work is the distribution of mobility opportunities: are there large differences with respect to potential and realised mobility between sub-groups within the larger group?
