FlexDanmark Delivers Efficient, High Quality Transportation to Its Citizens

In October 2018, AARP’s Office of Policy, Research and International Affairs staff Jana Lynott and Kim Sedmak traveled to Denmark for a study tour and video shoot of the successful FlexDanmark transportation system.

When it comes to transportation for older adults, people with disabilities, and rural residents, Denmark is known in transit circles for offering efficient and customer-satisfying service. The AARP Public Policy Institute confirmed this to be true during an eight-day study tour and video shoot of the FlexTrafik system. The entity behind the system, FlexDanmark — a nationwide software company owned by five regional public transport authorities — offers a global model for truly coordinated demand responsive transportation service.


Universal Mobility as a Service

No matter age, income, disability or community size, everyone can get from here to there easily, safely and affordably with Universal Mobility as a Service—a new vision for the future of transportation.
