The meeting served then to analyse the list of potential further stakeholders to be involved in the Living Lab activities, as the initial version of the list of stakeholders was quite large and included public and private organizations, transport operators, mobility experts and users. So, what for in Demand Responsive Transport in Bologna? First, the Living Lab needs to focus on which DRT schemes can be useful in Bologna: this can be achieved with a step-by-step approach, discussing this topic with institutions, users and experts and afterwards involving the mobility operators. Thus, DREAM_PACE will involve representatives from the economic operators and from the users, involving also the team of the Municipality of Bologna taking care of the valorization of diversity and prevention and fight against discrimination, the department of the Metropolitan city of Bologna dealing with the touristic promotion and the University of Bologna as experts.
