For persons with disabilities, travelling is a great challenge, as finding the information on services to fulfill access needs, often prove to be difficult, costly and time consuming (UN 2018). The “9453 Friendly Traveler” presents a unique cross field design cooperation for promoting family accessible tourism in rural villages and for provoking the social participation of the disabled, the elderly and their care givers. By building accessible travel info with the Soil and Water Conservation Bureau in the Council of Agriculture and the Luxgen Motor of Yulung Taiwan, our design urges the public for better accessible environment and services.
