Abstract [en]

Improving accessibility to railway systems for persons with disabilities is a governmental assignment to the Swedish Transport Administration. A main issue is to develop quality assured measurement of accessibility. Apart from the accessibility definition, our research focus is on the validity of the measurements and measurement uncertainty. By defining an accessibility measure that is multiplicative, we obtain a measure that represents the different barriers persons can face when travelling.
