Explore Your City! The Journey is the Reward.
[April 2010] Under the motto “Explore your city” the two
Salzburg partners StadtBus and ZGB – Zentrum für Generationen und
Barrierefreiheit have started their latest AENEAS-activity on April 29th
For this purpose guidebooks in form of a folder were developed for
the seven bus lines crossing Salzburg. On the one hand these guidebooks
encourages older people to stay mobile even at old age and on the
other hand not only to use the bus to run errands but also to use it for
small trips and to explore parts of the city.
Another ambition of the project is to encourage people who use public
transport only rarely or not at all to deal with this form of mobility –
that way even younger car driver’s curiosity is aroused and they
can get in contact with public transport in a charming way.
Starting with bus line no. 4 from Liefering to Mayrwies interesting
buildings, persons and stories are presented which sometimes even local
people do not know about.
The folders are printed in 12pt letters and include among other things
tips for small walks with details about distances, resting places,
public toilets and accessibility.
The guidebooks are published monthly and are presented on an extra bus
tour that is accompanied by a tour guide. The first extra tour found so
much approval that there were not sufficient seats left on the bus.
The folders are available in the StadtBus service centres and are mailed
to several organisations for senior citizens.
The next dates of publication and presentation are:
22 September, 21 October and 23 November, 2010
