Smart mobility solutions can reduce car use and car dependency, and among the young elderly (65-79 years) contribute to an active and independent aging. Currently, their use of smart mobility solutions is seemingly low. However, we lack knowledge about why and what public and private actors can do to increase uptake. We have examined the status of knowledge and the need for development and innovation. Many young elderly are positive to smart mobility solutions, but uptake requires that these are and are perceived as accessible and easy to adopt, and are perceived as relevant to a person’s travel needs. Among public and, in part, private actors, the topic appears relatively new and immature. The level of knowledge about the young elderly’s everyday travel habits and their use of smart solutions appears relatively low. If young elderly to adopt smart mobility solutions, this must be an active priority by relevant actors.
