Transport costs for elderly and disabled people

When people experience limited mobility due to old age or disability, they are faced with a stark choice. Either sacrifice your mobility and become dependent on the goodwill of others, or face extortionate transport costs in order to maintain your independence. It may not be possible to drive a car or catch buses, so elderly and disabled people become dependent on taxis or private ambulances to get them about. Over time, this is expensive and frustrating. Mobility scooters are actually more cost-effective alternative in the long run, as they are often affordable to buy and very cheap to maintain.

The benefits of mobility scooters

For an elderly or disabled person, there are many important benefits which make the investment in a mobility scooter worthwhile:

  • Restored independence. It is difficult to put a premium on freedom. A mobility scooter allows you to go to the shops, the visit friends and to go about your business on your own terms and in your own time.
  • Convenience. You don’t need a large garage or driveway to store a mobility scooter.
  • Cheap to run. Most mobility scooters run on batteries that can be charged in the home. There is no need to fuel them with petrol. With a wide range of spare parts available, mobility scooters are also cheap to maintain and have a reputation for extreme reliability.
