Abstract
A City is the space where every person acquires the citizen condition, which demands access to multiple services and facilities, and develops social relations in a free and equal condition of options. A lack of accessibility limits independency and autonomy. Thus, the relationship between ¿sustainable development¿ and ¿accessibility for all¿ becomes clearer, and both goals reinforce each other. In this sense, information plays a key role in order to overcome existing barriers, especially for people who rarely use public transport, have impaired mobility, or make a particular journey for the first time. The impact and benefits is linked with public transport as a ¿facilitator¿ of mobility, and, in particular, for the aim of intermodality. The usefulness of information that should be provided (both the information itself and how is offered) to mobility impaired users (MI users) is discussed on this paper based on following of the ASK-IT project that has been carried out on Madrid. The work was done in close cooperation with representatives of all different types of MI user groups
