Reduced accessibility: personal experiences with accessibility problems
People experience various difficulties in reaching work and facilities or visiting family and friends. Not only travel time and travel costs can be a barrier, but also, for example, fear of an amount of traffic or not being able to cycle. People with accessibility problems often find ways to still get to their destinations, albeit sometimes with great difficulty. Limited travel options do mean they have less choice in activities and destinations and are vulnerable to change. This is according to the KiM study 'Reduced accessibility: personal experiences with accessibility problems'. Personal stories of city dwellers and people from the region illustrate the experiences of accessibility problems and their impact on participation in society.
