Coventry is the 13th largest city in the UK. The most recent population estimate indicates that nearly 15% of the population is over 65 and over 2% are over 85. Recognising that an aging population will have a significant impact on public services, social and interpersonal relations, Coventry City Council, Age UK and Coventry University have joined to plan and implement the World Health Organisation (WHO) Age Friendly Cities programme to support active ageing . Focusing on transport, this paper reviews the outcomes of the first two consultation workshops, articulating what works well to support older people, and where improvements need to be made in terms of transport planning, infrastructure and services.
