Abstract A rapid growth of the older population all around the world is being a significant number now a day. Public transport is an essential component of most people's lives. Good mobility and decent transportation alternatives are important in enabling the older population to participate in social interaction and daily activities. The most important concern inaccessibility is the relatively short distance and high-frequency movements from a permanent home. The most common complaint from those aged 65 and over was that public transport is not convenient and does not go where they want. The accessibility is a measure to identify transport service quality. A number of studies have been published to analyse accessibility indices, This study focuses on public transport accessibility for the elderly. This research uses datasets available from different sources to analyses the elderly travel pattern, travel time & travel duration on the Melbourne statistical area (SA1). This study analyses data from the Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity (VISTA), 2012. This study focuses to discuss various indices for public transport accessibility. This paper identifies index for elderly public transport accessibility.
