Maintaining mobility: the transition from driver to non-driver

An overarching policy framework is proposed to address and co-ordinate the issues faced by older people experiencing a transition from driving to non-driving. This framework proposes specific transition to non-driving initiatives within a broader approach of extending the enabling transport infrastructure that caters for all people, including those with disabilities, as well as promotion of alternatives to private car use across the community. This approach seeks to increase the population's awareness of alternatives to driving, knowledge of how to use them, and skill in using them well in advance of the transition from driving to non-driving. This is so that older Victorians can maintain good levels of mobility up to and past the point when they no longer drive, and thereby mitigate the negative impacts associated with this transition. The policy framework is structured around three complementary general strategies: Strategy 1: general awareness raising; Strategy 2: providing specific and individualised information; Strategy 3: providing supportive infrastructure and mobility services.
