(August 19, 2010 Release)
Since it came to the attention of IAUD (Patron: His Imperial Highness Prince Tomohito) that the methods and procedures of providing transportation information to commuters and travelers at places like train stations and bus terminals vary from one company to the next, we have been researching the issue with the goal of realizing a travel environment where “all people can travel safely and comfortably wherever they want to go” through what we term “seamless mobility” in travel information.
To discover the “seams” in the crossover from one service to another, we prepared the Mobile Information UD Survey as a tool. We now wish to advise that this tool is available online.
Wish to advise you that invite all persons interested in Universal Design to make use this survey in local government, transportation companies, schools and other public and private organizations. We welcome all comments and requests regarding the survey.
We have created this research sheet after trials in several locations and receiving feedback on many occasions. We invite you to make use of this tool for gathering opinions or researching the needs of various people in the community and for community building and the development of transportation terminals. After you use this sheet, we would appreciate it very much if you would give us your opinion on the sheet and any requests you might have for improvement or inclusion.
