In Norway there has been an increasing focus on universal design during the last few years. It has been included in the National Transport Plan as one of five main goals, and the national government’s accessibility programme BRA has provided resources. Eleven counties have goals on universal design in their County Plans, and in some city areas there are good examples of lines on which several elements of a whole journey are adjusted or designed. There is a long way to go before the local public transport system becomes accessible for "all" - with and without separate and tailored solutions. There are limited resources, and needs for national standards and increased competence. Making the whole travel chain accessible requires alignment and cooperation among many actors who each need to play their part. The report is only available in an electronic version.
