At the request of Adivia, the Ayuntamiento agreed unanimously to urge Fuerteventura's Cabildo, through an institutional motion, to comply with accessibility conditions in public transports.

Adivia suggested the creation of “as many taxi licenses as required so that institutions comply with the minimum of 5% adapted taxis as required by law”. They also suggested more accessible bus stops, accesses to all vehicles, speech assisted taximeters for blind people and vehicles with a step of at least 20 centimetres, amongst other measures.
