We actively lobby the European Union to move towards a barrier-free rnEurope for all to achieve a fully accessible transport chain from door rnto door. Transport

In the field of transport, this implies:

  • respecting the Design for All principle (add link) when designing transport vehicles such as trains or buses and surrounding infrastructure such as train stations;
  • accessible and easy to understand information about a journey
  • available and accessible information about the level of accessibility of a certain mode of transport
  • When transport is not fully accessible: providing assistance from the point of departure to the point of arrival at the final destination of a disabled passenger, tailored to his specific needs, at no extra cost.
  • Disability awareness and equality training for all personnel working in the transport sector.

We are an active supporter of the European Commission’s campaign on passengers rights.

Despite freedom of movement for all citizens and article 9 of the UN CRPD, persons with disabilities can still not fully benefit from this right as the transport system throughout the EU remains largely inaccessible.
