In the group we look at a wide range of transport issues as they affect older people. We continually look at issues such as the cost of concessionary travel, the quality of bus services and travel safety.
We work closely with Nexus, the City Council, the Universities and with the local bus operators such as Stagecoach.
In addition, we are consulted on transport initiatives, both National and Regional. We also nominate representatives to the Tyne and Wear Older Peoples' Transport Forum.
We meet bi-monthly and any member of the Elders Council is welcome to join the Group.

On Friday 19th July 10.30am – 12.30pm at the Campus for Ageing and Vitality, Elders Council is delighted to welcome representatives from Tolent and Newcastle City Council talking about their Newcastle Annuity Project which is building 148 new homes for older people in the West End. If you would like to come please contact: [email protected] or call 0191 208 2701.
It has taken us a while to arrange a convenient date with Tolent, so I do hope you will be able to support this event and promote it to others who may be interested in older people’s housing.
