27/10/2009 | 0 comments

logo of MEDIATE projectThe Mediate Project aims to establish a common European methodology for measuring accessibility. This will lead to the development of a self-assessment tool that can be used by policy makers to identify areas where upgrading will improve the accessibility of public transport in their city. In this way, Mediate will contribute to the provision of better and easier access for all. 

Project Structure

The project is stuctured around 6 Work packages (WP):

  • WP 1 - Stakeholder involvement and collaboration
  • WP 2 - Identifying indicators for describing accessibility
  • WP 3 - Data collection and analysing results
  • WP 4 - Development of a self-assessment tool for measuring accessibility
  • WP 5 - Dissemination and exploitation
  • WP 6 - Project management

APTIE stands for 'accessible public transport in Europe'. The purpose of this portal is to create a one-stop shop enabling a visitor to find information on, or reference to a wide range of matters related to accessibility in public transport (good practices, legislation, projects, etc.).

The APTIE portal has been established in the framework of the Mediate project, a EU FP7 project which aims to establish a common European methodology for measuring accessibility to public transport.
