Background & Objectives
The activity stresses the necessity of treating older people in a special way within the context of public transport in Krakow. The financial situation of older people in Poland is generally bad and therefore free PT is a very good solution for their budgets.
People who are retired have discounts because of their status, but quite low salaries at this stage of life. Thus a special ticket tariff was established by the City Council.
The objective of this activity is to make PT in Krakow friendlier for older people, to make them stay with PT and stop them from choosing individual cars. Besides, the generally bad financial situation of older and retired people is a crucial point.
The target group of this activity consists of all retired people and people older than 70.
