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 two pilot projects in Flanders to test new or existing technologies to make these target groups more mobile.
Taxistop is working together with the Step project to offer Olympus for jobseekers. We are investigating whether Olympus can offer a sustainable solution when applying for a job. Companies are often located in areas that are difficult to reach and the jobseeker has no car of his own. That is why the project offers the opportunity to test the Olympus app allowing to apply for a new job in a sustainable way.
Taxistop is organizing the roll-out of Mobitwin in Flanders. We will set up pilot projects at some ‘Minder Mobielen Centrales’ where both driver and member are using the app.
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.
