East Asia and Pacific Region Transport,

 This note describes a number of innovations taken by some Chinese cities, in particular Jinzhou, Liaoning Province, to ensure that urban transport systems are more accessible for the mobility-challenged. Public participation by disabled residents in Liaoning Province in northeast China has increased awareness and consideration for special needs in the design and implementation of road infrastructure. Jinzhou has convened a series of meetings inviting public participation on the issue of improving traffic infrastructure for use by disabled people. With the introduction of some low or no-cost features, the principle of “people first” for urban transport has been put into practice.
