Public transport services need to be updated and reviewed to better cater to the transport needs of the growing elderly population. Trips made by the elderly in the future are expected to become more spatially and temporally diverse (TCRP, 2004). If the elderly want to engage in trip chaining (when one links more than one trip, of similar or dissimilar purpose, to participate in more activities in any given day, and to minimise time spent travelling), and if the main mode of transport is public transport, it may prove to be quite stressful for the elderly because planning and coordination is required.

Tracking can be defined spatially within State (with an on-board electronic odometer (OEO) shut down capability when out of State via the GPS system); and within a local jurisdiction15. An electronic odometer records distance within jurisdiction. There is a central computer wirelessly intercommunicating with the OEO, which calculates the road-use charge and applies it at point of sale, at the fuel pump. Once the charge has been paid (EFTPOS…) the system turns OEO back to zero, re-initiating the road-user charge procedure.

Third, the sample sizes used in the experiments to date are not sufficient to demonstrate clearly how much of a shift TravelSmart can produce. The statistical tests suggest that some significant shifting of car driver trips has occurred as has a shift in car passenger in Perth. , 2003). A recent review for the UK Department for Transport (Department for Transport, 2002) states: “It is clear that the techniques will generally only work ‘on their own’ where there is a large gap in perception between what exists and what people believe exists.
