“TMB is the main public transport operator in Catalonia and a benchmark public mobility company in Europe and the world.”
"Since 1992, the stations on the metro network that have been constructed or renovated, all have guaranteed accessibility.
We are continuing with work to make the metro more accessible for everyone by progressively adapting the facilities, implementing a voice navigation system using distributors throughout the entire system, route indicators for blind people in many stations and the increasing use of light-operated devices to close train doors.
The entire Barcelona metro network is accessible except for some specific stations (14 out of a total of 159 stations)."
100% accessible bus network"People with reduced mobility have reserved seats inside vehicles. For people who are blind or with visual impairment, there are sound and visual warning systems outside vehicles, with an info-accessibility device for the blind. The ticket validators inside the vehicles have signalling, which through colour contrast, also in braille, can read the identification number of the bus in which they are travelling."
Other accessible TMB installations
"The Barcelona Bus Turístic has the same facilities as the rest of the bus fleet on its lower deck and now has an audio induction loop for deaf people, with an audiophone that enables them to hear the audioguide more clearly.
Since 2007, the Montjuïc Cable Car has been a totally adapted facility. In 2008 it was awarded the universal accessibility certification."Mobility accessibility features:Mobility Information:
