ADM+S PhD Student Jiyoon Lee, based at Monash University, is investigating how to improve the design of transport services for senior citizens in Melbourne. Her research project ‘Mobility-as-a-Service for Senior Citizens’ (project ID 30005) focuses on the integration of mobility services in a single digital platform.

As part of her fieldwork, Jiyoon is calling for participants aged 65 years or older, who use private or public transport in Melbourne to get involved in her research. Participants will be asked to complete a short survey, take part in two 1-hour interviews, and keep a travel diary for a week. As a token of appreciation, each participant will receive a $50 gift card at the completion of the research.

Based on the insights gathered, Jiyoon will propose design strategies and guidelines for future digital transport services to support seniors’ mobility experience and their social inclusion.
