This study investigates improvements to public transport
for people aged over 65 in New Zealand rural and small cities. Due to the popularity of Thames, NZ for people aged 65 and over the population for this age group is increasing in Thames and therefore so does the demand for alternative modes of transport (to maintain the elderly’s independence), especially once owning or driving a private motor vehicle is no longer a viable option. This study explores the existing problems that the elderly face regarding transportation in Thames, NZ rural and investigates possible public transport improvements to help maintain independence for people aged 65 and over.
