White Paper: Mobility & Accessibility

Using smart, secure connectivity to bring inclusivity and accessibility to transportation.

Connectivity in transportation is becoming more and more normalized. From GPS and infotainment systems to ride-hailing services made easy with mobile applications, many of us utilize connectivity in our everyday mode of transportation without giving it much thought.

However, the reality of the situation for those with mobility and accessibility challenges is much more difficult and complex. For example, while popular ride-hailing service apps may be readily available to those who are able, for someone who has impaired vision or needs a wheelchair, it can be a daunting task.

In 2021, England’s Department for Transport published a report on Disability and Accessibility and stated that in 2019, adults with disabilities made “26% fewer trips and traveled 41% fewer miles” than adults without disabilities.*

This white paper explores the following topics:

  • What does it mean to be living with disabilities in a mobility-centric smart city?
  • How can connected transportation technology remedy these issues?
  • How might AUTOCRYPT’s fleet management solution serve as the link between the challenges and a fully functioning smart city?
  • Case studies of strategic partnerships AUTOCRYPT formed with paratransit non-profits and DRT providers on solving these challenges
