Technical Solutions for Barrier-Free Public Transport

Evaluation of technical solutions for barrier-free public transport in Berlin

In Berlin there are about 25,000 blind and partially sighted persons, who rely on the use of public transport. By realising the project „2-Sinne-Prinzip in Bussen und Bahnen“ („principle of 2 senses in busses and trams“) the Senate of Berlin and the BVG (the main public transport company of Berlin) pursue their joint objective of providing a barrier-free passenger information system.

In the scope of this project, a participatory model test is realised from February 2018 to February 2019. Several technical solutions for the implementation of the barrier-free 2-senses principle shall be tested in busses, trams and at the respective stops.

In cooperation with BVG, SGM is realising an evaluation of the technical solutions to be tested.
