ADDITIONAL COSTS INVOLVED IN DESIGNING PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

The discussion about the modes of transport for handicapped and elderly persons was very much intensified in West Germany in the last years. The Public transport systems are not convenient for everyone like in many other countries. Special transport services however are not everywhere available. The paper presents some results of a study about the possibilities to adapt public transport systems to the necessities of handicapped and elderly people. Estimates of cost and realization periods were made. /Author/
