Future of Transport: Addressing the Barriers through Innovative Solutions with the TRIPS Project – Part I

Online seminar on occasion of the European Independent Living Day
5 May 2021
organized by ENIL, supported by AAATE and the TRIPS consortium

ENIL and AAATE are part of a 3-year European project called TRIPS, which aims at making the public transport in seven European cities – Bologna, Brussels, Cagliari, Lisbon, Sofia, Stockholm, and Zagreb – more accessible for disabled people, elderly voyagers and really everyone. To do this the project brings different people in each city together in co-production groups.

We want to address barriers commonly faced by users with and without disabilities in public transport and implement steps for having accessible transport solutions for the future. These solutions can vary from simple – but meaningful – ideas like accessible bus stations, to futuristic innovations like accessible flying taxis.

Join our online discussion with TRIPS project partners and end-users, and let’s discover together next steps to make the future public transport in Europe and beyond accessible and inclusive for all.
