TUD COST Action 349
The Accessibility of Coaches and Long Distance Buses for People with Reduced Mobility

The main objective was to produce a concept providing guidance on the construction and design of interurban and international coach and bus systems in respect of the needs of people with reduced mobility in order to assist operators, passenger and authorities when developing plans for accessible and high quality transport systems. Action results cover all aspects of the public transport accessibility for disabled users and are of considerable relevance in the development of the EU legislative or regulatory acts, similarly to previous two Actions dealing with accessibility of urban buses and railways. Results were presented to the professional public at the COST 349 Final Seminar organised during the “Busworld” Exhibition in Kortrijk. This seminar was attended by 120 experts from both the operating and manufacturing sectors of the bus industry and representatives of organisations of disabled people and press. The keynote speeches to the conference delegates were delivered by high level policy makers of the European Commission and Flemish government.
