Abstract

This report, prepared for Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in conjunction with the Technische Universitat Darmstadt (TUD), examines the handicapped-access technologies present on the local transportation system in Darmstadt, Germany. Also, we gauge the level of satisfaction among wheelchair-bound patrons with the current system. Through a methodology of interviews, observations, and surveys, we determine the effectiveness of the handicapped-access technology in Darmstadt and then formulate recommendations for improving the current system.
