Taxistop is a partner of the European project Inclusion. It is funded by the Horizon 2020 program which involves 13 partners from various European countries. INCLUSION stands for Towards more accessIble and iNCLUSIve mObility solutions for EuropeaN prioritized Areas. INCLUSION is a 3-years project that will address a number of challenges related to the accessibility of public transport in remote urban/rural areas and neighborhoods.
Taxistop will start various pilot projects in Flanders to test new or existing technologies to make these target groups more mobile. For example, Mobitwin or SocialCar can be used to improve accessibility. The project fits in closely with the new Flemish vision on basic accessibility.
The project expects to:
- understand the main transport challenges in different types of prioritised areas.
- provide an in-depth examination of ten innovative public transport approaches and a wider catalogue of at least forty case studies of accessible, inclusive and equitable transport solutions.
- deliver a set of recommendations and mobility solutions for vulnerable users’ communities.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 770115.
