Promotion of Urban Mobility for Aged Populations
Active and sustainable mobility in the city of the future
This exploratory project aims to contribute to the promotion of sustainable mobility for the aged population

By definition and in most of these cities, these areas are also areas where historical monuments and other factors of tourist attraction are located. Senior tourism is also a consequence of the general ageing of the population and has been increasing. This panorama makes the urban centers, especially the historical ones, as places where a greater number of elderly people are concentrated in comparison to other zones of the city, residents and visitors.
