Mobility Management for Older Passengers in Salzburg
|Mobility Day in
[April 2010] Like every year the "Mobility Day" held on
September 30th 2009 was a highlight for older people to get
information about all forms of mobility. More than 500 guests came to
the event in the bus depot of the local trolleybus operator StadtBus.
They enjoyed visiting the 25 information stands, seeing the different
vehicles, listening to the interesting lectures and attending a guided
tour. It was a great success!
The 5th Mobility Day will be held on September 22nd 2010.
In January 2010 an information campaign was run in the
trolleybuses in Salzburg. Two sets of posters showing older passengers
were displayed in the buses and at the bus stops. One target was to
encourage older people to use the bus rather than their car especially
when going to the city centre. One poster emphasized the comfort and the
stress-free bus ride, one the social aspect of a group of active woman
meeting in a café. A folder with tips for safe mobility was provided in
the buses together with the new dates of the training courses:
In February 2010 the oldest passenger in Salzburg, Mrs.
Henriette Glas, turned 105 years and a team from StadtBus and ZGB
visited her. She still uses public transport regularly and knows some of
the names of the nice drivers on her busline. An article with a foto was
published to show that also very old people can use the trolleybuses.
