Transportation Systems for All Users

This article from Canada highlights the importance of universal design in order to accommodate for the largest number of possible users. It provides things to remember when planning to implement universal design, as well as barriers that can reduce implementation. "Universal design should be comprehensive, meaning that it results in seamless mobility options from origin to destination for the greatest possible range of potential users. It should consider all possible obstacles that may exist in buildings, transportation terminals, sidewalks, paths, roads and vehicles."
