Transdev committed to web accessibility
Committed to offering the best possible experience to all its users, Transdev makes its website navigable for people with disabilities.
We firmly believe that the web should be available and accessible to everyone, and we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of circumstances and abilities.
As part of our constant optimization effort that aligns with the group’s general policy in favor of diversity, we have partnered with AccessiWay.

With this collaboration, we aim to commit to this civic and supportive approach in the long term. During this digital transition and with the support of AccessiWay, we pledge to improve the digital accessibility of our site in the years to come.
What is web accessibility ?
Digital accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, they can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and they can contribute to the Web. Digital accessibility also benefits others, including older people whose abilities change with age. Web accessibility encompasses all disabilities that affect access, whether they be visual, cognitive, or motor.
An accessible website allows, for example, to :
- Navigate with voice synthesis and/or a braille display (commonly used by blind and visually impaired people);
- Personalize the site’s display according to one’s needs (magnifying characters, changing colors, etc.);
- Navigate without using a mouse (with the keyboard only, via a touch screen, by voice or any other adapted device).
For this, the site must comply with the current standards during its creation and updates.
Navigation assistance by accessWidget
AccessWidget enhances the accessibility of sites for users suffering from a wide range of disabilities (blind and visually impaired people, individuals with cognitive disorders, motor disorders, epilepsy, etc.), in accordance with WCAG 2.1 prescriptions, and European and French regulations (RGAA 4.1).
To achieve this, AccessiWay combines digital accessibility consulting services with an application based on artificial intelligence that runs in the background to constantly optimize its level of accessibility.
The notable improvements are:
Screen reader and keyboard navigation :
- Implementation of WAI-ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) attributes and various behavioral modifications, to ensure that blind users visiting the site with screen readers can read, understand, and enjoy all of the site’s functions.
Keyboard Navigation Optimization :
Activatable Profiles :
- Epilepsy Safe Profile : This profile allows epileptic individuals to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of epilepsy seizures resulting from flashing animations and risky color combinations.
- Visually Impaired Profile : This profile adapts the website so that it is accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as degrading sight, tunnel vision, cataracts, glaucoma, etc.
- Cognitive Disability Profile : This profile provides various assistive features to help users suffering from cognitive disabilities such as autism, dyslexia, stroke, and others, to focus more easily on essential elements.
- ADHD Friendly Profile : This profile significantly reduces distractions and noise, to help people with ADHD and neurodevelopmental disorders navigate, read, and focus on essential elements more easily.
- Blind Users Profile (Screen Readers) : This profile adapts the website to be compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack.
- Motor Disability Profile (Keyboard Navigation) : This profile allows individuals with limited mobility to navigate the website using the keyboard and Tab, Shift + Tab, and Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headers), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to access specific elements.
Additional User Interface, Design, and Readability Adjustments :
- Font Adjustments : Users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, etc.
- Color Adjustments : Users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7 different coloring options.
- Animations : Epileptic users can stop all running animations at the click of a button. Interface-controlled animations include videos, GIFs, and flashing CSS transitions.
- Highlighting Content : Users can choose to highlight important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only targeted or hovered elements.
- Audio Muting : Hearing aid users can suffer from headaches or other issues due to automatic audio play. This option allows users to instantly mute the sound of the entire website.
- Cognitive Disorders : AccessiWay uses a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, enabling individuals with cognitive disorders to decipher the meaning of phrases, initials, slang, etc.
- Additional Features : AccessiWay gives users the ability to change the color and size of the cursor, use a print mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other features.
