The department of Val-de-Marne has been recognised for its work in transforming thousands of bus stops to make them more accessible for people with reduced mobility to board and exit buses.

Val-de-Marne received the award from the Syndicat des transports d’Île-de-France (STIF), the transport authority that controls the Paris public transport network and coordinates the different transport companies operating in Île-de-France.

In 2004, Val-de-Marne, located southeast of the city of Paris, set an objective to improve the accessibility of 3,000 bus stops in the department.
