The main aim of this Paper is to take a step towards filling the gap in the information available on the transport needs of the disabled. In particular, the travel behaviour and preferences of disabled people in Canberra are explored with a view to producing insights into the effectiveness and limitations of existing and recently introduced transport services specifically designed for this group. Financial and organisational constraints affecting the operation of such services are also considered.
