What we do

Transport and Mobility

  • CERTIFICATION AND AUDITING

Audits and consultancy advice on the design and the implementation of a Universal Accessibility Management System to support applications for certification under the UNE 170001-2 standards.

Example: Internal audit and assessment for Transports Ciutat Comtal (TCC) on the design of the Universal Accessibility Management System and its integration into the transport company’s existing Integrated Management System.

Analysis and Accessibility plans in Transport
  • ANALYSIS AND ACCESSIBILITY PLANS IN TRANSPORT

For the compilation of a study on the transport of a municipality, situations or barriers are located and resolved that any person could encounter during a hypothetical journey in a given region. A study is also carried out of the situation in relation to reserved parking spaces for people with problems of reduced mobility in the municipality.

The most recent transport accessibility plans carried out are: Can Mora de Dalt (Sant Vicenç de Montalt), Muskiz, and reports on solutions regarding public transport for ATM, EMT and GISA.

  • ADVICE ON MOBILE MATERIAL AND TRANSPORT INSTALLATIONS IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE COMPANIES

If consists in the compilation of an accessibility report on transport where a real situation is analysed, carrying out the corresponding improvement proposals and posterior conclusions.

Example: Renfe Mataró railway station. A revision of accessibility at the station - Mataró for commuter rail.

Accessibility of Transport Elements
  • ADVICE ON ACCESSIBILITY IN THE FIELD OF MANAGEMENT OF PRIVATE AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT

To assure means of transport accessibility we carry out ergonomic and usability studies of the private and public transport infrastructure elements to improve users usage, safety and comfort.

Examples: An audit of the FGC stations. A revision is carried our of the FGC network, ensuring the carrying out of current accessibility legislation and of the construction criteria of the company itself.

Accessibility of Transport Elements: Ergonomic and usability studies are carried out of the elements that are located in the infrastructures of public and private transport so as to improve their use, security and level of comfort when the user interacts with them.

  • ADVICE ON SIGNALLING, INFORMATION AND TICKET SALES

Example: EMT System of pre-advice for upcoming stop. The objective of the study is to find a technical solution for the information within the bus, that be applied to operating companies that presently offer services in the area in the company - Metropolitana del Transporte.

Usability analysis
  • USABILITY ANALYSIS

Example: MAE. Technical advice on the adaptation of a rail ticket vending machine from the Catalan rail network - Ferrocarriles de la Generalitat de Cataluña. A voice navigation system was developed to aid people with disabilities when interacting with the machine.

  • STUDIES OF REGULAR AND SPECIAL TRANSPORT TERRITORIAL NEEDS:

Example: Study on specially adapted public transport with the Barcelona metropolitan area. The aim of the project would consist in the realisation of the proposals to create a metropolitan public transport service for people with reduced mobility, determining the service conditions, a prevision of its costs and proposals for its management and use.

  • STUDIES ON ROAD ASPECTS

Example: Collaboration with the ProEixample team in the bicycle lane project in the street calle Provença, designing the crossings of Diagonal and Paseo de Gracia and rearranging the location of a tourist bus-stop in front of the La Pedrera to give a more visual perspective to this building and to the Paseo de Gracia.

Parking Studies
  • PARKING STUDIES

Studies that are developed from a field of work where the number of existing and occupied spaces in various days of the week and at various hours are gathered, to deduce the necessity to generate more parking or the possibility of reducing it.

Example: Santa Perpétua de Mogoda and Parets del Vallès. From the results of the study, the City Council will evaluate the viability of the construction of underground car parks.
