IMPROVING BUS ACCESSIBILITY SYSTEMS FOR PERSONS WITH SENSORY AND COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENTS. FINAL REPORT
The study examines access issues relating to persons with sensory and cognitive impairments in fixed route applications. There are four main goals of the report: 1) To determine existing technologies, operating policies, and training programs that are currently being used by transit agencies in North America to accommodate individuals with sensory and cognitive disabilities; 2) To examine the technological and operational needs where there are problems of transit access for individuals with disabilities which are not currently being addressed; 3) To specify design guidelines and conceptual designs that solve problems of transit access for individuals with disabilities; and 4) To specify operating policy and training program modifications to increase transit access for individuals with disabilities.
