Are all models of urban public transport (bus, metro, tram, and train) accessible to all persons with disabilities?


Question 2 refers to accessibility of public transport in urban areas. Respondees from Africa and Asia as well as Latin America confirm that there is still a long way to go, and not a lot of improvements are on the way.


At a world average of 2.6, this Indicator is one of the lowest in the whole survey. Respondents from 78 countries (65 per cent) answer “no.” Whereas progress is reported from European countries and Northern America, inaccessibility remains the standard in low income countries.
