The feasibility study “FTS for disadvantaged social groups” aims to demonstrate the most suitable mobility service scheme for people with disabilities and mainly those who face mobility problems taking into consideration existing services and needs. It will lead to the upgrading of the services already in operation. The study’s main priority is the improvement of flexible mobility for this special social group. The feasibility study will focus on the special areas characteristics, special group needs and possible FTS scenario schemes.
The pilot application will implement and test ICT solutions concerning flexible mobility services for people with disabilities. The implementation concerns the use of a specially designed and equipped minibus with ICT equipment. The evaluation of the service impacts to its users will lead to the service’s enhancement, considering also basic environmental issues.
