Accessibility of Public Passenger Transport Services to People with Specific Needs
/ 01 Sep 2017 16:50
Passengers information systems implemented in the urban public transport vehicles were complemented by communication systems allowing to communicate to people with reduced orientation. These systems are called command sets for visually impaired and are also referred to as “talking trams”. When activated at the sta¬tion, this system informs the blind passenger, through an outside-placed loudspeaker, about the number of the line and direction. If the blind passenger is interested in getting on the vehicle, they press a button informing the driver about their intention and the driver may pay attention to them.
