French law 2005-102 on “equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities” and its numerous implementing provisions have only strengthened RATP’s determination to pursue and finalise the actions undertaken to improve accessibility.
Consultation with representatives of persons of reduced mobility is a key part of our strategy to facilitate equal access to the RATP networks.
This is carried out notably through the Accessibility Advisory Committee chaired by RATP Chairwoman and CEO, Elisabeth Borne.
