- John Whitelegg, Editor of the Journal of World Transport Policy and Practice
is I am putting together a special issue of the journal "World Transport
Policy and Practice" on the theme of transport, accessibility, mobility and
the elderly. The planned contents are below. But it occurred to me that
there might be place there for a cycling piece that looks at it from the
vantage of the 70+'s. Anybody here have any thoughts or guidance for us on
= = = = = =
The contents will include the following:
The transport needs of older people
Travel behaviour and the elderly
Walking, cycling and public transport use in this group
Car use in this group especially car use by the over 80 years age group
The links between accessibility and mobility for this group
The links between physical activity (walking and cycling) and maintaining a
long healthy life
Travel needs of older people in developing countries
Poverty, age and mobility
Parkinson's disease and the continuation of a healthy, involved life style
Older people and community vitality: the great under-utilised resource
Disabled /differently abled people and transport needs
The emphasis will be on real insights into this group of transport users
based on original research and on evaluations of practical policy
initiatives to address the needs of this group.
All papers will be refereed.
If you would like to submit a paper please let me have a title, author
details and 50-100 word abstract.
The paper itself would be needed by 15th September this year.
