Paratransit for Mobility-Impaired Persons in Developing Regions: Starting Up and Scaling Up

New technology and new thinking about sustainable transport systems are coming together to enable fresh approaches to the door-to-door transportation needed by disabled persons in less-wealthy regions.

Access Exchange International (AEI) has prepared a guide that takes a fresh look at everything from smart phone applications to ways non-profit NGOs can work together in order to scale up existing services. It also provides examples from some of the paratransit systems now operating beyond the “traditional” services found in Europe, North America, Japan, and Hong Kong – with fresh information from cities such as New Delhi, Cape Town, Istanbul, São Paulo, Kuala Lumpur, and Moscow.
