Support us to increase the quality of life for Elderly in The Hague.
We do this by making sports activities more accessible.
TranSport is a start-up that connects elderly with sports activities in The Hague. We do this by transporting elderly from their homes to the sports facilities. Sports activities are a great way to stay healthy, meet new people and bring variety in the daily life.
The Hague offers a lot in the section of sports activities for elderly, yet how do the elderly attend these? Lack of transportation is often a barrier, causing the elderly not to sport. As a consequence their health weakens, they don’t make new contacts and have less variety in their daily life - in other words they are missing out on much quality of life. TranSport is the ideal initiative to overcome this barrier and to enhance the quality of life.
For the transport we need to hire a bus, the costs vary between €80 and €100.
Further, the sports facilities need to be available which brings costs with it.
At last approximately €50 is needed for the marketing of TranSport.
We'll gladly answer any questions you have concerning our project at:

I’m Julia and I study International Studies in The Hague. When I moved to the city three years ago I found that sports are great way to connect to people. Being active not only helped me to stay physically fit, but it also helped me to make new friends that share a common interest. I personally love doing yoga and playing volleyball with friends. I realised that the boundaries for elderly people to take part in sports activities are too high. I believe that sports can be beneficial to any age and everyone should have the opportunity to take part. That’s why I want to make sports more accessible for elderly people in The Hague!
Hello! My name is Dongqi. I’m currently studying Chinastudies in Leiden, and I’m one of the team members of TranSport. When we started our project, we wanted to connect people. We thought about ways to make this happen, and quickly arrived at sports. I haven’t come into contact with sports much lately, which I think is a shame. Not only are sports a great way to stay healthy, de-stress, and have fun, it can also help in connecting people. Sports exist in many variations and can vary in the degree of activity, so all kinds of people could participate in them. I think that TranSport can help with connecting people through sports. With our initiative, I hope that even more people will join in to contribute to a healthy and social The Hague!
Hi! I am Wouter and I am a Public Administration student at Leiden University, Campus The Hague. I am 25-years old and ever since I can remember I am interested in sports. It is fun to do, it is good for your health and it can bring you many social contacts. Sport connects and this was one of the first things where I could think of when we were struggling with the question: How are we going to tackle loneliness? We as a group found that there are already many sport activities in The Hague, fit for elderly people so we thought: this is our opportunity! Let us be the ones who connect the “lonely elderly” with those activities to tackle the challenge. And that’s what we’re going to do. I strongly believe in our product-service to be effective and achievable. I will make sure that our start-up will run smoothly through the bureaucratic maze, and that this will all be done within our budget. Let’s TranSport!
I am Sige, a 20 year old Mechanical Engineering student at the Technische Universiteit Delft. I have played football for more than 10 years and after I quit I started going to the gym. While staying healthy and being active, I also made a lot of friends with sports. In my opinion, everybody should be able to access sports activities and thus have social connections. With TranSport we are trying to give elderly people the option to attend sports activities and make social connections to establish a better health condition, alleviate social isolation and offer a variety in their daily life. TranSport is the ideal service to overcome the barrier of (public) transportation to the sports facilities.
