HiReach aims to eliminate transport poverty by triggering new mobility solutions. HiReach builds on the potential of bundling and mixing dispersed, special and non-coordinated/optimised trip requests and needs from different vulnerable user groups to favour inclusive and participative mobility rather than exclusive/special and geographically-limited mobility.
The vulnerable user groups within HiReach 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.
By combining different attributes of available transport concepts and bottom-up initiatives with new operational schemes and IT applications, HiReach will explore viable business models for small scale, modular and easily replicable mobility services (community transport services, ridesharing, minibus/van pooling…) that can be provided at affordable prices and/or with minimum subsidies.
