HANDICAPPED PEOPLE AND TRANSPORTATION SECTOR--MEASURES AND POSSIBILITIES FOR INTEGRATION
Discussions on whether existing public transport services should be made accessible to the handicapped have been going on for years. There is some evidence that handicapped people do need special transport services, and that this need can only be met by new types of transportation systems. The existence of special transport services does not necessarily cut the handicapped off from rest of society as these special services can be combined with regular public transport services. However, special services should not result in a cutback in the efforts to make public transport facilities more easy to use for handicapped people.
