Blind and partially sighted people tested the renewed areas of metro line M3

In order to ensure equal conditions in the subway, rehabilitation experts and representatives of relevant organizations cooperated to make metro line M3 accessible to everyone.

On the 26th of March the stations were tested by the representatives responsible for accessibility issues of two organisations: the Hungarian Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted (MVGYOSZ) as well as the Central Hungarian Regional Association for the Blind and Partially Sighted (VGYKE). The purpose of the on-site visit was to view, test and indicate the systems for supporting the information and safe traffic of the blind and partially sighted passengers.

Here are some important things to do to help the visually impaired: the pavement of the entire area of ​​the stations has tactile markings (guiding lines), the surfaces are free of slip and underlay. At the entry points of the escalators an audio orientation guide has been installed, and the edges of the staircases have a 3-3 cm, optically distinct, yellow markings that make orientation much easier. Elements on passenger information systems include an anti-glossy information surface, high tonal contrast, and complementary color pairs.
