TRAVEL PATTERNS OF ELDERLY PEOPLE UNDER A CONRECESSIONARY FARES SCHEME (1977)

The work investigates the overall patterns of travel by different modes and for different purposes. In relation to various personal and household characteristics, the effects of changing from a half-fare to a zero-fare cencession; and the seasonal differences in travel patterns. It is estimated that the change in concession generated a 34 percent increase in the number of bus trips made. In early summer, 8 percent more trips were made than in early spring, the difference being mainly in recreational trips. This report investigates the movements of elderly people living on Tyneside. It is based on four similar travel surveys conducted over a period of 16 months.
