HiReach – High reach innovative mobility solutions to cope with transport poverty
HiReach is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 European Research Program exploring the theme of Equity and Inclusion of Transport.
HiReach aims at eliminating “transport poverty” by mobilizing new mobility solutions designed to meet the needs of multiple target groups, leveraging information technologies and social innovations, “open source” tools and start-up development to identify and exploit new business ideas which could be useful for social groups and geographical areas with reduced accessibility.
The target groups include people with temporarily or permanent reduced mobility, children, young and elderly people, women, migrants and ethnic minorities, low income and unemployed, people living in rural and deprived areas.
TRT is the project coordinator and leads the 9 partners international consortium and is in charge of exploring innovative mobility solutions and business models. It also collaborates on the analysis the mobility needs of social groups at risk of exclusion.
