Cs returns to demand from José Ballesta an economic appropriation destined exclusively to guarantee universal accessibility in public transport (11/02/2019)

Mario Gómez: "It is not dependent people who have to adapt to the shortcomings of public services, but it is the responsibility and obligation of the local government to ensure universal accessibility at all stops, bus shelters and municipal buses"

The spokesman for Citizens, Mario Gomez, has asked José Ballesta to "show more sensitivity with a matter as basic as universal accessibility and include in the budgets of 2019 an economic allocation exclusively intended to Murcia buses are adapted to all the Murcians, without exceptions ".

In this way, Gomez has criticized the mayor who "wants to cover the deficiencies that in this sense public transport in Murcia suffers with another announcement, this time from an external application that, being positive, is not enough to achieve real accessibility "

According to spokesman 'orange', "this mobile application and the system of QR codes at stops does not mean that buses are adapted for the blind".

"It is not dependent people, Gómez clarified, who has to adapt to the shortcomings of public services, but buses, bus shelters and stops that must offer a real and universal accessibility that allows them to improve their day to day."

"What is not of receipt is that the mayor of Murcia intends to supply the lack of accessibility with an external application, when public transport does not have, for example, maps of the lines or networks in relief, nor a guide of the all public transport services in Braille, as well as light and acoustic warnings, etc. ", he lamented.

For this reason, the Cs spokesperson reminded José Ballesta and the PP that "they are obliged to adapt all the stops, bus shelters and buses to guarantee universal accessibility;

and that the municipal budgets of 2019 should have a heading to achieve this goal. "
