Most older people are mobile and able to use public transport without any problems. Those who are hard of hearing of have poor vision and those with mobility problems need not be deterred from using public transport. Although the design and provision of suitable buses, taxis, and trains is not always optimum, many now have imaginative features to help older passengers. Travel by air and sea needs extra planning for disabled elderly people, but helpful advice is available and much can be done to enable even the most disabled traveler to make long journeys confidently and in comfort.
