AnnotationThe decline of services and transport provision in the North Cotswolds has led to a progressive deterioration in disabled and older people's welfare. This study, based on interviews with 498 individuals in eight typical parishes, relates to travel behaviour of these groups to health status, personal circumstances, the grade and location of services, and mode of transport. The repercussions of the Transport Act 1985 for the car-less and severely disabled are then examined. Given the increased loadings on domiciliary support systems, the case ins argued for coordinated initiatives to alternative transport provision which relate, sensitively, to the needs of different groups among older and disabled people.
