Travellers with Disabilities

Bucharest is not well equipped for people with disabilities, even though there has been some improvement over recent years. Wheelchair ramps are available only at some upmarket hotels and restaurants, and public transport – both the metro and buses – is generally not accessible. One possible resource is the Romania Motivation Foundation (www.motivation.ro), which has worked hard since its foundation in 1995 to provide access to wheelchairs for locals in need. They run wheelchair sports leagues and camps, with a focus on helping people improve their wheelchair skills.
