Universal access to transport services requires a change in environments where the public walk, would like to walk, or should walk. Whilst there are factors in transport environments that directly affect the accommodation of people with disabilities, universal access means that their accommodation must be made together with the rest of the population without disabilities. The safety of the road environment, becomes an important consideration, if public transport is to be used by everyone, and if walking is to become a means of transport in its own right.
