The objectives of the presentation are to provide insight, using contemporary thinking about disability and three cases studies centred on (1) physical disability, (2) blindness, and (3) disability – transit interactions, into current limitations and possibilities with bikeway design. The presentation will also introduce several possible technologies and alternatives for improving bikeway design in a manner more compatible with the presence of disabled road users.
