Transportation of the disabled
Sosnowiec - a city without transportation barriers
of Youth Education KANA in cooperation with Health and Welfare Division
of the Sosnowiec City Hall carry out a pilot project concerning
transportation of the city residents with disabilities. It is a part of
a programme titled "Everyday support for disabled residents of
Sosnowiec by creating conditions to increase their mobility"
The city of 38 thousand people who suffer from various degrees of
disabilities has been lacking this sort of service (there was only a
sanitary transportation provided by highly specialized units). It means
that disabled residents of Sosnowiec were forced to meet their
communicational needs on their own.
However, the situation will change. Due to this project the people will
be able to get in a comfortable, safe and cheap way to e.g. a doctor,
bank, shop or friends making use of the transportation service.
