Using Community Planning Method to Improve Effect of Urban Barrier-free Transportation System

Many Chinese cities have completed barrier-free transportation infrastructures system but always ignore its efficiency. The study purpose of this research is to find out some community planning method to improve the effect of bus and metro barrier-free transportation system in China. Filed survey are research methods used. Taking Chengdu as the study area, researchers carried out a large scale filed survey to study the current bus and metro barrier-free systems. Through relevant literature research, then find people physically challenged to check whether these infrastructure meet their really need. Finally, based on considerable empirical evidence, the findings can be generalised to suggest five issues relevant to the creation of ‘enabling’ or more accessible city environments for all. Overall, this study provides academic support and empirical analysis for what was ignored in urban transportation planning (UTP) process owing to efficiency first principle.
