An Age-Friendly Transport System
Throughout the last year, Ambition for Ageing has been working with the Centre for Ageing Better, Greater Manchester Ageing Hub, Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership. Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), Greater Manchester Older People's Network, other partners and older people from across Greater Manchester to further understand what an age-friendly transport network looks like, what challenges older people face and what older people think the transport priorities should be.
This work began with Dr Charles Musselwhite’s report into older people’s experiences of transport, Age Friendly Transport System For Greater Manchester, which you can download on our resources page.
We are pleased to now be able to release a document, outlining the 7 themes the research found to be most important to older people, and the actions we plan to take as a partnership based on them.
