A New Approach to Designing Transport Systems Free of Mobility Barriers

“You only need empathy in design, if you have excluded the people you claim to have empathy for.”

– Liz Jackson, Founder of The Disabled List

The ambition of the TRIPS project is to make public transport more accessible for persons with disabilities, elderly voyagers and really everyone. We want to address barriers commonly faced by persons with and without disabilities in public transport and implement steps to avoid barriers of any sort in urban transport.

co-design for all toolkit

The TRIPS Co-design for All toolkit provides an overview of the main methods that have been co-created and piloted with seven participating cities in the project.

Mobility Divide Index platform

The Mobility Divide Index (MDI) is a brand-new indicator that evaluates the accessibility of public transport services from the point of view of persons with disabilities. 

Co-design in seven cities

The TRIPS project is dedicated to the creation of processes that are co-designed with/by/for persons with disabilities. This approach allows people, disabled by inaccessible environments, to take the leading role in designing accessible and usable transport systems. The project is executed by seven groups of persons with disabilities located in Bologna, Brussels, Cagliari, Sofia, Stockholm, Lisbon, and Zagreb.
