"Walkable" TOD for those with a Mobility Challenge
I am working on some TOD designs for a Neighbourhood in Edmonton
Canada and a co-worker raised an interesting question. "What is a
reasonable walking distance for someone in a wheel chair to get to a
major transit centre?" This got me thinking of people with walkers
and other forms of mobility challenges.
In general a 5 to 10 (400 - 800 meters) minute walk for someone
without any mobility issues.
What about someone in a wheel chair? how far would they be willing
to go? Someone in a walker?
Is there anyone out there who has dealt with these issues?
Can you recommend any case studies, readings, etc...?
Thanks a bunch.
