Toyota Supports Tokyo 2020 with Specially-Designed ‘APM’ Mobility Vehicle
Dubai: Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), worldwide partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, announced recently that to support the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, it is developing a special new product, the APM (Accessible People Mover), a mobility vehicle designed expressly for use at the Games.
Through the Games, Toyota aims to provide all people with the freedom to move, or what it calls, ‘Mobility for All’ The APM 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 impairments, 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.
