Senior-friendly public transport: What should age-appropriate public transport look like?

Europe’s population is ageing. in 2019, more than a fifth (20.3 per cent) of the EU-27 population was at least 65 years old. And the trend is still rising. Demographic change is a challenge for public transport, but it can also be an opportunity for growth with a customised mobility offer for senior citizens. After all, if older people no longer drive, they are increasingly dependent on public transport in order to continue to actively participate in social life.

What is … a Mobility Hub?

What is … a Mobility Hub?

Mobility Hubs, also known as Mobility stations, are publicly accessible locations where various modes of transport and sharing services converge. These can be S-Bahn (suburban train) and subway stations in an urban context, or even a bus stop in the countryside where rental bikes are available or important bus routes intersect. At these stations, people can easily switch from one mode of transport to another. Mobility hubs promote efficient and sustainable mobility by offering various mobility services, otherwise known as Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS). The concept can be expanded from a simple bus stop to large Mobility Hubs, for example, with a combination of on-demand transport, car sharing stations, or e-scooters.

Attractive public transport as key to the mobility turn: the German Consumer Report 2023

Attractive public transport as key to the mobility turn: the German Consumer Report 2023

The mobility of the future must be possible without owning a car. An overwhelming majority of people in Germany agrees with this, according to the German Consumer Report 2023 of the Federation of German Consumer Organisations (vzbv). However, many people, especially in rural areas, are still disconnected from local public transport. Complete independence from individual transport can only be achieved if mobility offers attract more people. Public transport must become more appealing. But what does that mean and how can we achieve this mobility of the future?
