On Thursday 23 June, EPF’s Sandra Lima participated in the European Economic and Social Committee’s (EESC) hearing on transport accessibility. The aim of this event was to discuss existing barriers in the mobility landscape and to share good practices and necessary steps for creating more inclusive transport.

In her presentation, Sandra stressed that the freedom of movement contributes to a balanced, equal and sustainable society. However, persons with reduced mobility are often forgotten in the transport planning process, which prevents their ability to autonomously travel and participate in society. It is therefore crucial that the needs and concerns of all ages and groups are appropriately addressed.

Ultimately, improvements to accessibility will benefit all passengers, which is a win-win solution.
