The Principles of Universal Design

Hannah: Imagine a bus entry system that allows everyone to get on and off seamlessly. No more waiting for the driver to make special arrangements for wheels to enter the bus. Public transportation has made great strides in accessibility, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Many elderly people still find it difficult to navigate. Making transportation seamlessly accessible is one of universal designs goals.
