The importance of making cities inclusive and safe has always been highlighted by Isfahan's urban management board.

Providing accessible transport systems for all citizens, notably by developing public transport with a special focus on the needs of people with disabilities, has a special significance for all municipal managers.

For many disabled and mobility-impaired Isfahani citizens, buses are an important lifeline for getting around. Much of the city's subway system is accessible to those who can’t use stairs. However, wheelchair users and others with impairments still face challenges when it comes to taking buses.

Now, the municipality of Isfahan has taken important steps to make accessibility a priority for Isfahan's public transportation system. By purchasing new wheelchair friendly buses, Isfahan has taken a big leap forward in terms of being disabled friendly city.
