Working Groups: Transport and Highways Group
In the group we look at a wide range of transport issues as they affect older people. We continually look at issues such as the cost of concessionary travel, the quality of bus services and travel safety. We have been part of a recent Community Transport Study and will be involved in taking forward the recommendations from this study.
We work closely with Nexus, the City Council, the Universities and with the local bus operators such as Stagecoach, .
In addition, we are consulted on transport initiatives, both National and Regional. We also nominate representatives to the Tyne and Wear Older People's Transport Forum.
We meet monthly and any member of The Elders Council is welcome to join the Group.
