The HiReach/Inclusion Final Virtual Conference took place on 22 September 2020. More than 350 people registered for the event that were interested in how mobility can become more inclusive, equitable and accessible.

The event was completely free of charge and it was ideal for cities, regions, transport authorities, transport providers, mobility entrepreneurs, and end users’ associations willing to learn how to make mobility truly inclusive for all types of travellers. During the event, the attendees were able to engage in the discussion and listen to excellent speakers who will be highlighting tools, methods, and solutions to design a more inclusive mobility system for all, and in particular, for vulnerable-to-exclusion people living in urban, peri-urban, rural and remote areas.
