9 THE CIVITAS INITIATIVE IS CO-FINANCED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION What did we discuss?

10 THE CIVITAS INITIATIVE IS CO-FINANCED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION Not more than 2 prams per Tram due to safety Requirements Even after Refurbishment Solution: solve Safety issue By fixing prams Schoolbuses can’t take other passengers, often the only transport, again: due to safety concerns Can national regulations be made more flexible? PT legislation not adapted for integrated services. A new national law should regulated specifically inclusive transport services. CCTV cannot be used in court as legal prove for crime nor traffic offenses The law should change, and police should be more present on PT Public service obligations not well defined, or underbudgetted. Passenger rights will help to move forward Traffic law does not favour active modes such as walking or cycling, vulnerable road users need to be taken more into consideration. Strong local policies to protect cultural and historical character of cities block accessibility measures. Better awarenss about solutions and dialogue can solve the problem.
