Transport plays an important role in enabling people with disabilities to travel and live independently. People with disabilities often experience barriers in accessing transport. Lack of access to transport may lead to high rates of unemployment, poverty, and lack of opportunities among persons with disabilities. It is therefore essential to improve the provision of transport for the disabled community.
