Abstract

The relationship between urban environment and the travel of people with disabilities has received scholarly attention. Studies have analyzed disabled travel from multiple perspectives. However, there lacks a systematic review of the variety of existing research methods and results. This paper identifies and examines 66 studies to understand the state of knowledge on the relationship between urban environment and the travel of people with disabilities. Adapting the classic travel demand model to the mobility characteristics of people with disabilities, we interpret the existing literature, point out the missing links, and suggest directions of future research.
