Aiming to make Goa a fully accessible destination and address different mobility issues of tourists, Cox & Kings’ Enable Travel has partnered Ezy Mov, the first wheelchair taxi service in India, to provide accessible guided tours in the state.
Ezy Mov, which has completed more than 100,000 rides, has a fleet of taxis fitted with equipment like hydraulic lifts and wheelchair restraint systems.
Debolin Sen, head, Enable Travel, said: “Due to lack of transport facilities available, people with mobility issues including elderly travellers are unable to experience a destination in its broadest sense. To ensure barrier-free travel and enhance transportation within a destination, we have partnered Ezy Mov.”
Bennet D’cunha – CEO, Ezy Mov, added: “Our mission is to position India as the leading country with regards to accessible tourism. What better place to start the journey than Goa (one of the country’s top holiday destinations). Moreover, the public infrastructure in Goa currently is more accessible compared to other states.”
