OTTE: Older Travellers and Technology Engagement

OTTE: Older Travellers and Technology Engagement

We are increasingly using technology to manage and pay for our travel. OTTE investigated the key barriers to engaging with new and emerging technologies for older people.

OTTE identified features that meet the travelling needs of older people. This led to us suggesting changes that would enable a greater number of older travellers to access technology. The results will encourage and enable developers and commissioners of customer-facing transport technologies to better consider the needs of older travellers.
