Age Friendly Transport Forum

Getting around

The WA Age Friendly Communities Priorities Report published last year provided an overview of shared Age Friendly priority areas and highlighted Transport as a key challenge facing older people across all local governments. It's a barrier shared across both metropolitan and regional communities.

This will be the first time a number of agencies will come together to provide an insight into transport information and responses for older people, including on-demand transport. Hear also from a number of local governments about successes and challenges with transport models for older people.

'Getting Around' is an opportunity to put Age Friendly transport in the spotlight and move forward our knowledge and understanding of how we can reduce the barriers for older people.
