EU Parliament Study Report - Transport and Tourism for Persons with Disabilities and Persons with Reduced Mobility


EU Parliament Banner logo8 May 2018. This extensive study has undertaken literature reviews, user and experts’ questionnaires, interviews and workshop surveys, analysis of EU legislation, SWOT and Multi-Criteria Analysis, identification of best practices and analyses of case studies.

This has led to a mapping of accessibility across the EU Member States (identifying relevant state clusters) for three different sectors: local transport, (which includes mainly public transport services such as buses, trams, metro, and short-distance rail transport, but also the use of personal cars and personal mobility aids); long-distance transport, (including road, rail, air, and maritime transport) and tourism.

The aim of this study is to provide Members of the European Parliament’s Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) with clear recommendations on what could be done, in particular at the EU policy level, to support accessibility in the transport and tourism sectors.

Specific policies, research priorities and recommendations are made per state clusters and for the EU, which can enhance accessibility in each of the three sectors.

The project was carried out by: 

Contractor: Centre for Research and Technology Hellas / Hellenic Institute of Transport  - CERTH,  (Greece)

Sub-contractors: European Disability Forum (EDF) and European Network for Accessible Tourism (ENAT).
