Abstract: While transport is a significant enabler of sustaining livelihoods among poor communities, it is clearly also increasingly deemed important to deliver the benefits of greater inclusion of persons with disabilities into society, enabling them to participate more fully in every day activities, particularly in developing and transition countries. Intervention strategies (such as employment equity, improved delivery of health care and rehabilitation services, and inclusive education) are typically targeted at specific spatial locations, thus increasing the need and the desire of persons with disabilities to have access to accessible public transport services.
