  1. Pity about the main streets themselves. Sydney is built on hills which makes a lot of the main thoroughfares steep. Worse is that the curb usually has a a 2 inch lip or more which when trying to push up hill on a busy road can be challenging. Not impossible but challenging.

  2. hi,

    This is great. It guides mobility impaired individuals to make their transportation in this city easier. I favor this very accessible product http://www.portashopper.com to help you transported easily when you need to explore the city.

    Thank you.

  3. Nothing in Asia? Interesting. I hope Asian cities catch up and make their cities PWD-friendly. Traveling abroad with disability is quite challenging. It’s more challenging, I must add, when the city you are traveling to is not that friendly to people with disability.
