Transport and Mobility

This Special interest Group brings together academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines with a common interest in researching and communicating knowledge about mobility in its broadest sense.

In the last decade the mobile turn in the social sciences has emphasised that transport is more than moving from A to B and in gerontological terms there is increased recognition of the importance of mobility, in its many forms, for older people's health and wellbeing. There is a need to ensure mobility for older people to keep connected to communities, reduce isolation and loneliness and encourage independence and ageing well.

The group is run by Charles Musselwhite and Ben Spencer. It includes a mix of BSG members and non-members from Universities in the UK and beyond, policy and research think tanks and government. Please contact us if you would like to join our email list.
