Travellers with Disabilities

Ukraine has pledged to promote access to public transport and buildings for people with disabilities under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Compliance with this in Kyiv is fair. On the one hand, sidewalks are wide and most hotels at the midrange and up have lifts. On the other hand, most buses, trolleybuses and street underpasses still lack wheelchair ramps. Some public buildings and museums are not fully accessible to people with disabilities – although, encouragingly, some are.
