COMMUNITY TRANSPORT: POLICY, PLANNING, PRACTICE. CHAPTER 2: DEVELOPING ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORT: THE EUROPEAN EXPERIENCE

This chapter explores how European countries other than the UK have identified and are providing for the transport needs of people with disabilities. Because of the wide variation in routes by which accessible transport has developed, this chapter focuses on the attitudes and policies underlying the development of accessible transport and mix of systems and facilities, both public and specialised, that have evolved. Access to buses, trains and taxis is considered. Forecasts of the number of elderly drivers anticipated in the future are noted. The costs and benefits of providing accessible transport are discussed. For the covering abstract see IRRD 875321.
