This paper provides a framework for evaluating and comparing country transport policies to understand the extent
to which these are being altered to cope with aging societies. Using the framework, transport policy documents of six
countries in the industrialized world were analyzed and compared. A deliberate effort is made in the selection of countries
to draw lessons from the comparative evaluation for Canadian transport policy. The paper highlighted the importance of
country policy context and motivations in influencing the country’s choice of transport strategies and approaches. The paper
also proposed a checklist of policy areas encompassing the wider variety of concerns that directly and indirectly impact
on older people’s mobility. Finally, future policy and research issues on transport and aging are underlined in general
and as they relate to Canadian situation.
