The venture aims to develop an online platform for vehicle hailing to help people with disabilities, elderly people and their caregivers improve their physical mobility. The platform targets to partner with legal vehicles with accessibility features including wheelchair taxis, private Welcab Limousine Service and Rehabus to allow needy persons to book the most suitable transportation service in a time-efficient, transparent and legal way. The barrier-free transportation service is available and accessible to anyone with mobility difficulties. It enables the equality of mobility freedom and thus enhances the social connections and well-being of the target beneficiaries.
Funding from the SIE Fund will mainly be used to support the project’s website development and recruitment and training of drivers.
