Tokyo – Toyota has introduced its new ‘APM – Accessible People Mover,’ a shuttle featuring a futuristic design that will transport visitors during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this mobility vehicle was designed specifically for the Olympic Games.

Toyota aims to provide everyone, including persons with disabilities, the freedom to move, or what it calls, “Mobility for All”.

The Accessible People Mover takes this challenge to the maximum degree, offering a “last one mile” solution that helps transport as many people as possible to events and venues, including athletes and staff related to the Games as well as all types of visitors with accessibility needs such as the elderly, people with disabilities, pregnant women, and families with small children, among others. It is also anticipated that part of the fleet of APMs will be used to support relief activities at events/venues during summer. During the Games, Toyota will employ approximately 200 APMs to support the transportation of visitors and staff around various facilities, including places where events or competitions are held and non-event official sites such as the Olympic Village.
