    This paper describes a co-design activity with older adults exploring the use of SMS as a mechanism for providing real-time passenger information (RTPI). This activity consisted of a series of design workshops that utilised an experience prototype to help understand the issues such a system might encounter. The workshops highlighted barriers caused by the mobile phone platform (sending and receiving SMS messages), how RTPI can be used by older adults and its effect on emotion and perceptions of privacy.
