HiReach

HiReach is a three-year EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that focuses on the development of new tools and business models to improve accessibility for areas and communities in need. 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 (e.g. community transport services, ridesharing, minibus pooling, etc.) that can be provided at affordable prices and/or with minimum subsidies

  • HiReach STUDY REGIONS

    The project will conduct focus groups and workshops in 6 regions where it can improve inclusion and accessibility in transport based on intensive fieldwork. The regions are:

     

    • Counties of Esslingen and Göppingen (Germany)
    • Naxos and Small Cyclades (Greece)
    • Southern Salento, inner area (Italy)
    • Guarda and Torres Vedras (Portugal)
    • North and South-East Luxembourg (Luxembourg)
    • Buzau (Romania)

     

    The initial analysis phase in each case study region will bring the public together with that local authorities, transport operators, representatives of interest groups in society (e.g. persons with disabilities, the unemployed, children, the elderly, migrants).

    This public consultation will lead to in-depth interviews and the establishment of focus groups and with local professionals and relevant stakeholder organisations. The outcomes of the case studies will help HiReach to understand the needs of specific communities and groups. Armed with this information, businesses can introduce new models and solutions that address the needs of specific communities and replicate the results elsewhere in Europe and beyond.
