Course offer: be & remain mobile.

The course is aimed at people who avoid ticket machines, who have difficulty navigating around a train station, who feel insecure on the streets etc. etc. etc... or people who are interested and curious - particularly those over 50 years of age. So these people too can be independent and autonomous for as long as possible.
