The project conducted focus groups and workshops in 6 regions where it could improve inclusion and accessibility in transport based on intensive fieldwork. The regions are:
- Counties of Esslingen and Göppingen (Germany)
- Naxos and Small Cyclades (Greece)
- Southern Salento, inner area (Italy)
- Guarda and Torres Vedras (Portugal)
- North and South-East Luxembourg (Luxembourg)
- Buzau (Romania)
The initial analysis phase in each case study region brought the public together with the local authorities, transport operators, representatives of interest groups in society (e.g. persons with disabilities, the unemployed, children, the elderly, migrants).
This public consultation led to in-depth interviews and the establishment of focus groups and with local professionals and relevant stakeholder organisations. The outcomes of the case studies helped HiReach to understand the needs of specific communities and groups. Armed with this information, businesses can introduce new models and solutions that address the needs of specific communities and replicate the results elsewhere in Europe and beyond.
