ISEMOA – Improving Seamless Energy-Efficient Mobility Chains for All

Transnational Cooperation

The project ISEMOA started in May 2010 and will run until May 2013. ISEMOA is co-funded by the European Union under the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) 2009 STEER programme. SECAD is the only Irish partner among 14 European countries in this ambitious accessibility project. Every day almost a third of the population encounters barriers in public spaces and on public transport. Among them are people with baby buggies or heavy luggage, people with mobility problems, those with hearing or visual impairments, or people with learning diffi culties. Because of the existing barriers, for many people it is difficult or even impossible to move around independently in our public spaces. Consequently, these people often have to depend on a car for much of their regular travel.

Local and regional authorities, with the support of public transport bodies and local organisations, can help inhabitants and visitors of their counties and cities to adopt a less car-dependent lifestyle by ensuring that public space and public transport services are fully accessible. Improved accessibility for pedestrians (including wheelchair users), cyclists, and public transport passengers to daily activities contributes directly to increased quality of life in the area. Improved access to retail, employment, education, childcare facilities, health and essential services, sports and leisure facilities, etc. by sustainable transport modes helps to bring about energy-savings in transport and reduction of harmful traffic emissions.
