Three defi nitions created the framework for the project.
Cognition; the thinking process where information and
knowledge is received, worked through and supplied.
Democratic design; accept that people are different and
does not exclude possible users.
Public transport; a possibility for people to travel in an organized
way in a common vehicle.
The result of this project is a service that offers information
that is essential to fulfi l a journey from A-Z. Except from the
concept itself I suggest this report to be seen as guidance
for projects that includes public transport and the aim of diversity. (Less)
