Older people (age 55+) are invited to complete the following active travel survey to document their experiences of walking, cycling and wheeling (wheelchair or mobility scooter).

Click here to fill in the survey.

This research is commissioned by Transport Infrastructure Ireland with the objective of making active travel safer for older age groups. It is being carried out by Sustrans and CFE Research.

Active travel means making journeys by walking, cycling, and wheeling. These modes of travel are generally for purposeful reasons, include going to the shops, getting to work, running errands or visiting friends and family, but can also include journeys for the purpose of recreation, fitness or fresh air. In this study, wheeling includes those who use a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Cycling can also include those who use adapted cycles (such as tricycles and hand-bikes) and e-bikes.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey also asks if you would be interested in taking part in follow-up interview – this is optional. If you select yes to this option they will ask for your name and either email address or telephone number so they can contact you to arrange this.
