5 May | Webinar 1: For the user with the user: enabling accessibility in public transport

Programme & Registration

Three webinars – 5 May, 10 May and 23 June – to look at accessible transport with public transport providers, policy makers and travelers with disabilities. A call for action to make accessibility a core objective of upcoming infrastructure investments, in particular in public urban transport. A sharing of co-design solutions currently trialed in seven European cities.  The ambition of the TRIPS project is to make public transport more accessible for persons with disabilities, elderly voyagers and really everyone. Over the past two years, we have deployed a co-design approach to support people, disabled by inaccessible environments, to take the leading role in designing accessible and useable transport systems. This has led to concrete co-designed mobility solutions being currently trialed in seven European cities: Bologna, Brussels, Cagliari, Lisbon, Sofia, Stockholm and Zagreb. Building on the experience in the TRIPS project and current trends in the public transport sector as well as the policy environment around mobility in Europe, the TRIPS project consortium proposes three webinars to share insights and spark further discussions.

Our first webinar looks at how civil society can work together with public entities to improve their services, including its accessibility to end-users. This webinar also intends to support members of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and the wider transport sector in understanding the different best practices that can be applied to improve their network accessibility.
