This report is a summary of 8 preliminary notes made for the research project "disabled people in the street environment" (IRRD 604867). The aim has been to make proposals for organizing the transportation service for handicapped persons. The conclusions drawn are: transport of disabled persons is a public responsibility, and a special service should be established in all communities. The service must give the disabled as good transportation possibilities as other people have. In the future this service ought to be operated by bus-companies and taxi-cabs. Directives and regulations for transport facilities used for this purpose should be prepared as soon as possible. Drivers and assistants need special training on how to aid disabled persons. Financially the special transport service should be supported by the government, counties and communities. /TRRL/
