Accessibility in public transport
How well is the public transport adapted to people with disabilities?
The transport system needs to be designed so that it is useful for people with disabilities in accordance with the Government's transport policy objectives.
The accessibility of public transport for people with various types of disabilities has been studied using a new measurement method.
Accessibility is defined here as the degree of fulfilment of various criteria, chosen jointly with organizations for the disabled, applying to the various parts of a journey. Nine groups of disabilities or diagnoses are represented: hearing impairment/deafness, stomach/intestinal disease, asthma/allergy, movement impairment, impaired vision/blindness, developmental disability, anxiety, dyslexia, and ADHD.
