The present study examined the current status and measures regarding support for outdoor mobility based on regional and individual characteristics and the status of the development of public transportation. The following results were obtained: (1) There are limitations to the current public transport system with respect to securing opportunities for activities. Further, with respect to characteristics of outdoor mobility there are differences between the elderly, and persons with disabilities. (2) An investigation regarding the introduction of the group taxi revealed that it is not just a means of transportation. Rather it contributes to the improvement of a sense of community among participants.
