A review of travel behaviour, residential relocation after retirement, and opinions about the use of mobility scooters and transport issues compared against the socio-economic situation of Adelaide seniors.

Summary

This National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre (NSPAC) report is based on the analysis of primary data from the 2012 Adelaide Seniors Travel Survey (ASTS). The survey was conducted among 285 National Seniors Australia members aged 65 and over who lived in the Adelaide Statistical Division. The ASTS was a self-administered questionnaire for seniors living in Metropolitan Adelaide and recorded travel behaviour, residential relocation after retirement, and opinions about the use of mobility scooters and transport issues. The survey also collected information about the socio-economic situation of seniors and their households.
