Motorized travel behavior of the elderly is a result of the desired travel being affected by transit convenience. In this paper, the leisure travel of the elderly in Kunming is taken as an example. According to the “push-pull” theory, the behavior relevance model of leisure activity-travel of the elderly is established by the structural equation model method. The influence mechanism of transit convenience is analyzed, which is based on 74 qualitative interview data and 633 valid questionnaire sample data. Studies have shown that transit convenience has a significant influence on the choice of leisure locations of the elderly. The choice of leisure locations has the greatest influence on travel behavior. In the planning and design of urban leisure space, attention should be given to the functional requirements of the elderly and a reasonable layout. The improvement of transit convenience can reduce societal exclusion of the elderly population caused by transportation.
