The School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (Ramon Llull University) has created a manual for improving accessibility for those with cognitive disabilities in Barcelona’s metropolitan transportation network.
With the assistance of Cátedra Ethos, the ESADE Social Innovation Institute, TMB (Barcelona Metropolitan Transportation) and Dincat, ESADE has created the manual “Accessibility for all. Adapting the Barcelona metro to those with intellectual disabilities”. This document provides helpful information for promoting universal access to the Barcelona metro, especially by analysing the specific case of the L3 line.
“The goal of the study was to see how accessible the L3 was, in order to identify points for improvement in cognitive accessibility –such as signage or illumination– and for improving users’ travel experience. How can a passenger with trouble understanding their surroundings get from one line to another? How can we improve their experience? How can we help them navigate on their own?” asks Mónica Cerdán, of the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi.
Although TMB already invests in accessibility with a series of corporate measures and policies, this is the first time the operator has worked with cognitive disabilities. In addition, this project is based on the detailed analysis of fieldwork meant to evaluate, identify and apply potential improvements.Read more
