As is known, there is only a very short period of time for public transport services to be made accessible for people with disabilities. Along with the remaining short period, the problems of all individuals and institutions within these services began to take place in the media.
In fact, the beginning of this process is based on the contracts signed in 2005, but as in many jobs, this long process has not been well evaluated, what has to be done has been postponed, postponed and left to an end and a short period of time.
Naturally, this long process would have been well evaluated and what had to be done. However, at this point, if the accessibility arrangements are really aimed at raising the quality of life of people with disabilities, the whole mass transit system of the present huge size is not necessarily in the wrong and incomplete way, but in the pilot regions of certain parts of the system. It will be more accurate to plan to make accessible.
To be realistic, the regulation of disabled accessibility of all public transport is a very large volume. Considering the public transport, not only buses and minibuses, but also other means of transportation such as watercraft, trains and subway, there are a large number of vehicles that need to be accessible and many stops, bus stations, stations, piers, overpasses, underpasses and so on. should be considered. The resource required by a large business in this volume is a serious burden for our country with limited resources, even for countries with abundant resources.
Moreover, as everyone knows, it is always more labor and money than to make a corrupt, wrong thing, try to fix it, to do something properly and correctly from the beginning.
For example, if we take the minibuses that work in Istanbul, most of these minibuses, both interior and exterior design, are definitely not suitable for disabled accessibility. This is the case, if all of these minibuses are intended to be transformed into the ones that can be used by persons with disabilities, a wrong path is followed. If you insist on it, the owners of the vehicle are punished. Although it is attempted to get scared results, there are pseudo-solutions which are aimed at eye staining but do not provide any benefit in practice. For example, the minibus driver can not be solved by imposing a ağı ramp to the doors ın because the 2 ramps that you will use on the existing minibus doors leave the inclines that a disabled person cannot even enter a vehicle without a disabled person. Instead, it is necessary to apply a specific transition period, to comply with the accessibility requirements of the minibuses that will be opened to the traffic, and if not, the license and so on. applications that are not granted, old and inaccessible vehicles can also be removed from traffic due to a timetable in time will be more realistic and feasible.
In this way, vehicles such as buses, minibuses, ferries, water buses, train cars with modern design and accessibility will take their place in the system over time.
As a matter of fact, some vehicle manufacturers and operators have started serious work on this subject. Lamira is also involved in this work and shares its know-how and experience with mobility products for the disabled.
As the most important public transportation vehicles, minibuses, minibuses, and taxis that are the most important public transportation vehicles in the city are minivan type vehicles, the studies focus on this type of vehicle. If these vehicles are designed properly, the 1 or 2 seat can be folded or removed to provide space for the wheelchair passenger. If there is no wheelchair passenger in the car, the seats are in their original position and the current capacity of the vehicle can be utilized. The interior designs of some of the present means already conform to the aforementioned embodiments. The missing part is the wheelchair access and landing part inside the vehicle, for which the ramp or lift systems are mounted to the rear door of the vehicle or the side sliding door.
Solutions are available and the fact that the official authorities are in close dialogue with the people and organizations within the sector will accelerate the realization of the most realistic and appropriate solutions. Otherwise, these solutions will not be examined thoroughly, without a good planning, with heaping information and sanctions for eye-staining, as in the case of these public transport vehicles, confusion will come to the fore, and it will be possible to reach the environment and practices that the disabled and the public transport sector desires. will not.
