Abstract

Our project focused on trying to improve the accessibility of transportation for the elderly and disabled in Hong Kong. We centered our research on public buses, taxis and pedestrian walkways. Through interviews and research, we found that these systems are improving, and in general are quite accessible. However, there are areas where changes need to be made in technology, legislation and the attitudes of citizens.
