Acquisition of vehicles to expand fleet
APIC - Roues Libres
APIC works in partnership with AGAFAB, an organisation that manages two welcome centres housing 270 beneficiaries of RSA welfare, workers with disabilities, retired people and asylum seekers.
The collective micro-transport project, including the recruitment of a driver for the residents and the acquisition of two vehicles, is being implemented to respond to the everyday transport needs observed at the two centres (obtaining or keeping employment, training, healthcare, culture, leisure, etc.).
The aim is to foster the lasting travel autonomy of the individuals concerned. Some of the residents of the centre “naturally” play the role of resource contacts for their peers, informing them of transport services in the area, as well as financial aid and rates.
Following on from this initiative, APIC will each year be training two to four residents per centre who have been identified as correspondents. These individuals will in turn be responsible for informing their peers. In addition, mobility assessments and workshops will be organised systematically for residents receiving RSA welfare benefit.
