The Least and Most Wheelchair-Friendly Cities for Public Transportation

Cheapism Logo By Jason Notte of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 31: Don't let the hilly nature of the city fool you: Wheelchairtravel.org ranked Seattle No. 1 among its most wheelchair-accessible cities thanks to wheel-friendly ferries and taxis with ramps. The mild weather and high safety rating help, but the bus system has been fully accessible for more than 20 years, and its Sound Transit light rail is wheelchair-accessible as well. Major tourist attractions including the Space Needle, zoo, and aquarium are all wheelchair friendly too.
