An app developed with our partners
Journeys on public transport are planned in advance and require the provision of information as they take place, until the passenger disembarks from the vehicle.
The Fil Bleu mobile app and route finder were designed in collaboration with the Association Valentin Haüy (AVH), which supports visually impaired and blind people. This close partnership has ensured the app is compatible with automatic readers, which will read aloud the text contained in the application at the user's request. AVH members have also encouraged Fil Bleu teams to adopt better graphic and visual design practices, for both the website and paper documents. For example, minimum font sizes should be established, there should be a strong contrast between a sentence and the background, and overlapping shapes should be avoided.
According to AVH, "this collaboration allows us to better understand our needs in order to create long-lasting solutions that benefit everyone.”
Both our website and app are Access42-certified. This body has confirmed that these two media comply with the RGAA (General Regulation on the Accessibility of Administrative Features), which has set out digital accessibility obligations since 2016.
Many improvement to our bus shelters, tram stations and vehicles have made our transport network more accessible

At the stop, a tactile surface is placed on the ground to allow users to position themselves at the front door in preparation to board the tram. They will also be able to hear the audible announcement
