With the coming of the aged society, the right of the elderly to participate in social life has been paid more and more attention, and the aging population urgently needs to promote the construction of traffic accessible environment with the travel needs of the elderly as the core. Through the document analysis method of qualitative research, this study chose to make a comparative analysis of the transport accessibility policies of the elderly in Singapore and Hong Kong, aiming to provide policy recommendations for government departments to accelerate the construction of a convenient transport environment for the elderly and support their integration into society. It is found that researchers pay more attention to the infrastructure level of accessible construction, and less discussion from the overall perspective of the traffic system. In addition, the results show that there are obvious connectivity problems in Hong Kong's traffic accessible construction.
