Micro-railway system around main streets of Gracia.Gracia’s Vía,
¿Para qué? Origen o problemática a solucionar
To facilitate the mobility to elderly people that need additional help to walk; this will also help your parents to move around when carrying babies and shopping bags.
¿Quién? Actores: gestores o receptores
Ayuntamiento de Barcelona would be the service provider;
The users would be mainly elderly as well as your parents with babies;
It could be used by everyone else living in the area.
¿Cómo funciona? Desarrollo
Rails will be installed in the area around the main plazas. The user will find a platform with a pedal and by pushing it a sit will pop-up. This sit will move through the rails till the user reaches his/hers destinations. A third person has to pull or push this unit.
¿Por qué? Importancia
Gracia is an area with a big elderly community; they like to walk around and gather in plazas but most of them struggle to walk without additional help (canes, walkers, third person).
Also, many young parents with kids live there and they find it difficult to go shopping as they don´t have enough space or hands to carry their babies and the shopping bags.
