Abstract

The paper examines the mobility of senior citizens with respect to various leisure activities, an area that has remained under-exposed. The analysis shows that older people prefer to take the car for trips in their leisure time. If they own a vehicle, they tend to use it frequently, irrespective of where they live. Characteristics of the residential environment mainly infleunce the modal choice of seniors who do not have a car of their own. Public transport is primarily used as a substitute for walking and cycling ; public transport does not offer seniors a real alternative to the car
