The "accessibility for all" is a quality attribute in sustainable mobility, senior tourism, social inclusion and territorial marketing. It considers the needs of the elderly and other reduced mobility people (e.g. wheelchair people, blind, deaf and tourists with trolleys). This must be considered in means of transport and in terminals and stops (interfaces), pedestrian infrastructures, architecture, information and communication technologies.
This project focuses on interfaces and on the associated pedestrian network. A study pilot of an accessible, intelligent and sustainable bus stop is designed for Faro airport, in a collaborative process. Design, program and test an, accessible for all, web page and applications are developed about Algarve transport network. Accessible communication with an information panel of the routes of transport is developed and implemented at Faro airport. Pedestrian Accessibility Design in the surrounding of a known hotel is developed and implemented.
