Chicago Has Plenty to Offer to People With Disabilities

Chicago is a relatively accessible city, with plenty of measures in place to ensure that people who use wheelchairs can enjoy what it has to offer. But how accessible is accessible, and what are some troubles that those with mobility difficulties might face whenever they find themselves in Chicagoland?

Streets and Sidewalks

Chicago’s sidewalks are passable for people who utilize wheelchairs. During the winter season, the city clears out the snow to ensure that they are safe to pass through. It’s worth noting that the streets and sidewalks in the city center, downtown, and business districts are better-cared for.

Public Transportation

Chicago’s public transit system is easily accessible, although there are some challenges that people with mobility aids may face such as the lack of an elevator at most stations. Buses are mostly equipped with ramps and a special area for those with accessibility needs to sit in. Despite these provisions, getting to the public transport stops in the first place can make getting to appointments on time difficult and inconvenient.
