Accessible Travel

  • While seats and parking for people with disabilities are respected, in general Taipei is not a very accessible environment. Street footpaths are uneven, kerbs are steep, and public transport, other than the MRT and HSR, is not equipped with wheelchair access. Taipei is slowly modernising facilities and many lifts and public toilets have wheelchair access.
  • Taiwan Access for All Association ( provides advice and assistance for travellers with disabilities.
