FILBLEU IS COMMITTED TO PROMOTING ACCESSIBILITY OF PEOPLE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY.

This category includes many people: wheelchair users, blind or visually impaired people, deaf or hard of hearing, elderly, frail, passengers with baggage or accompanied by small children. Everyone must be able to travel peacefully on buses or trams !

The Act of 11 February 2005 on Equal Rights and Opportunities, Participation and Citizenship of Persons with Disabilities and the Decree of 13 July 2009 on the accessibility of guided urban public transport vehicles to persons with disabilities and with reduced mobility, constitute a framework of actions whose aim is, in the case of Fil Bleu, to create consistent accessibility throughout the network.

PASSENGER INFORMATION TERMINALS (BIV) : 

Installed on platforms of tram stations and platforms of line 2 Tempo, the information terminals provide real-time information on the waiting time of the next vehicles. They also contain call terminals with intercoms, accessible to all and easy to locate. They allow you to reach an Agent and get help quickly.

TRAMWAY = INDEPENDENCE :

The platform of the majority of tram stations (except: Tranchée, Mi-Côte and Place Choiseul*), is easily accessible for wheelchair users. The tram trains have flat floors and are on the same level with the platform. The double doors of the trains allow wheelchair users to easily access the tram.

Tactile bands have been specially designed for the visually impaired and placed on all the platform sides. Inlaid with mini studs, they are sensitive to the touch of the foot and the cane, and alert the visually impaired about the proximity of the track. This type of tactile band is found at the pedestrian crossings of the avenues. They alert about the dangerousness of the path to be crossed.

* These three tram stations are not compliant with the accessibility law (the Tranchée slope is 7%).

DEVELOPING ACCESSIBILITY TO BUS :

Renewal of the bus fleet makes it increasingly possible to have buses equipped with low floors and a retractable pallets for wheelchair users. Wheelchair users are advised to verify the presence of the appropriate pictogram. It is placed in the front of the bus or on the centre door. At the stop point, people in wheelchairs signal the driver so that he/she can position the bus as straight as possible along the footpath and lower the vehicle. He/she then deploys the retractable ramp located at the centre door level. People in wheelchairs climb up and settle in their designated area (marked with a pictogram). When they want to climb down, they make a stop request using the button on their right. This informs the driver that the pallet will have to be deployed at the requested stop.

In order to make a bus line accessible, it is also necessary that the stops and their surroundings are properly laid out by the municipalities: raising the footpath curbs to 18 cm, taking care of unimpeded access at the stop point, adequate width of the pavement. The 1400 stops are not all accessible as yet, but Tour(s)Plus, the municipalities and Fil Bleu are working every day to increase the number.

 

SOUND AND VISUAL INFORMATION :

page-accessibilite-tramway 300

Sound and visual information is available inside all tram trains and all buses :

  • In the tram and line 2 Tempo, screens show the next stops being served ;
  • Closing of tram doors is announced by a flashing signal intended for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and a sound signal for the blind or the visually impaired people ;
  • Inside the bus, the stop request buttons are marked with a relief inscription ;
  • Inside the tram, the buttons to open the doors can be located with their light intensity and a relief inscription ;
  • According to [French] Law 2005-102, new buses are equipped with electronic destination signs. Scrolling information tells you the direction (name of the last municipality served and the name of the terminal). Example: Direction St Avertin/Paul Doumer ;
  • Sound announcements indicate the name of the next stop and the destination of the line ;
  • Buses also have a loudspeaker located outside, near the front door. It is used to inform the visually impaired people waiting at the stop about the bus number and its destination.
