Passenger Facilities at Fully Accessible Bus Stops
This paper discusses ways in which users’ needs can be incorporated into
the design of fully accessible bus stops. The paper discusses the policy
framework and basic principles underlying accessibility issues and bus
stop design, then gives some examples of users’ needs as expressed during
a research project which is investigating the design of fully accessible
bus stops (EXCALIBUR). Some design issues are considered with reference
to these needs and some possible solutions are discussed using examples
which are due to be constructed for on-street testing and evaluation during
the EXCALIBUR project.
