MetadataShow full item record
Dhaka city lacks accessible, available, acceptable, reliable, safe, comfortable and affordable transportation system for people with disabilities creating barriers to their mobility. The study, through secondary sources, not only identified the main global and national policies that exist for the people with disability (PwD) but also found major gaps in the policies. Due to these gaps in the policies or due to the inefficient implementation of the laws the PwD face inequality in accessing the public services, especially the public transport and infrastructure. The findings from primary data show that PwDs are facing infrastructural and social barriers hampering their mobility and creating inequality in the public services. Therefore, this study has provided strategies to remove the infrastructural and social barriers, which mainly includes to train the transport providers regarding the services that needs to be given to PwD.
