Age-friendly transport is door-to-door booking transport for customers over 67, especially adapted to people who have challenges using ordinary public transport. The offer is for those who are at home during the day and need transport to run errands, visit or just want to go out.

– The pink buses are a great offer for the city’s elderly, and I am pleased that even more people will have the opportunity to get around in a simple and affordable way. This is part of the cooperation agreement with Frp and Krf, which is important for us to follow up, says health councilor Saliba Andreas Korkunc (H).

Four new districts

The pink buses have become a popular offer in Oslo. With the expansion to four new districts, there will be age-friendly transport in a total of 11 districts: Alna, Bjerke, Nordre Aker, Vestre Aker, Sagene, Østensjø, Ullern, Søndre Nordstrand, Nordstrand, Grorud and Stovner. The number of buses increases from 16 to 27.

– We know that this offer helps older people get out and live independent and active lives. An important part of a safe and dignified old age is having the opportunity to be social and meet other people, says Korkunc.

The offer is now so broad and comprehensive that whether you live in Holmlia and it’s tempting to take a trip back and forth from Ullern, or if you want to combine a trip to Stovnertårnet with a swim at Hvervenbukta, it will soon be just a easy ordering away for anyone over 67 years of age. It is also possible to bring along family or a friend as co-passengers.

– The expansion opens the way for far more people to travel cross-country locally, for example in Groruddalen and the south of Oslo, but also for people to go on long-distance trips in their own city. I don’t know of any other capital that can offer something similar, says CEO of Ruter, Bernt Reitan Jenssen.
