Suitable and affordable accessible transport for persons of all disabilities remains a challenge and is one of the largest barriers to the independence of persons with disabilities. For persons with serious mobility impairments, one of the biggest obstacles that they often encounter, is transportation, especially if they rely on Public Transport.
Suitable and affordable accessible transport for persons of all disabilities remains a challenge and is one of the largest barriers to the independence of persons with disabilities. Much of the Public Transport that is available to the general public is not always accessible to wheelchair users & many persons with Visual Impairments require extra assistance, which is not always available. Government projects often include introducing services to specific Cities or Provinces, these services cater & are accessible for all persons with disabilities.
There are many rural areas in South Africa which do not have public transport, let alone accessible transport. These areas are largely reliant on the taxi industry which also carries challenges for persons with disabilities. There are however private companies who specialize in the transport of persons with disabilities in South Africa. Some companies & organizations also rent out accessible or adapted vehicles.
