Accessible Travel

Budapest has taken great strides in recent years in making public areas and facilities more accessible to the disabled. Wheelchair ramps, toilets fitted for those with disabilities and inward-opening doors, though not as common as in Western Europe, do exist. Audible traffic signals for the blind are commonplace, as are Braille plates in public lifts.
