Paris transport disabled

10 August 2015


Finding Paris transport disabled and handicapped information is becoming easier.  More businesses, stores, buildings are becoming aware this is an important feature to provide, and there are many business people who are willing and keen to comply.

Having said that, you may still experience challenges in all older buildings where it is impossible to change the structure and layout.  So although Paris  is not the most  handicapped-friendly city in the world, there is a great move to change that in the coming years – the French are definitely trying to upgrade metro and other access wherever possible.
