Navigating autism in public transport

This interdisciplinary research aims to offer new perspectives on how integrating the participation of the autism community in public transport planning processes can help initiate and improve the social participation of individuals with ASD in society.

The quality of life for individuals with Autism is highly influenced not only by societal attitudes and the level of support provided by local and national authorities, but also by the spatial aspects of their surrounding environments. Spatial accessibility is a key factor that contributes to shaping the quality and range of social experiences available to individuals with autism and their families.

In line with the sustainability goals of fostering an inclusive society, this project offers new perspectives on how integrating the participation of the autism and autistic communities in public transport planning processes can help initiate and improve the general conditions around the social life of autistic individuals.

The project results aim to enhance the participation of the neurodiverse communities in the urban and community planning processes, thereby reinforcing the ideal of an inclusive, equitable and diverse society as the required conditions for living ‘together-in-difference’ in spatially just urban areas.
