Access4kom is a bright idea in Komotini for people with disabilities. Users can go to the site www.Access4kom and follow the most accessible route with ramps and bicycle routes. This new application further strengthens Komotini’s position as one of the most disabled-friendly regions in Greece. Plans are underway to video routes for even easier access.
The area is in East Macedonia and Thrace, northeastern Greece, and is home to a sizeable Turkish-speaking Muslim minority that makes up 40% of the city’s population. The “Perpato” (Walk) association is particularly active in terms of raising awareness concerning problems faced by people with physical handicaps.
