Abstract: This report describes a project that examined the transport needs of older people living in rural areas in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland. The project had several important objectives: To review current international research into the transport needs of older people, in particular in rural areas. To look at rural transport policy in NI and ROI, and to assess the impacts of that policy on older people in rural areas. To find out about the travel patterns of older people in rural NI and ROI (What modes do they use? What types of trips are they making?) To find out about the problems and difficulties faced by older people in rural Ireland (What trips can they not make? What modes are difficult to access?)
