Abstract

This paper explores ICT, transport and health in relation to inclusion and Quality of Life (QoL) for older people. Through focus groups and supplementary questionnaires, findings confirm previous studies in which people in older cohorts show a slight tendency to be less comfortable with ICT, and to integrate it less into daily life. Differences between individuals occur through interactions between knowledge and their practices, but the trend of an ageing demographic and increased longevity makes normalising ICT in older people’s lifestyles a policy imperative, so that key developments such as Intelligent Transport System (ITS) can
contribute to older people’s QoL.
