Good news for the disabled: new wheelchair-friendly trains introduced

There are 100,000 disabled people in Mongolia, of whom, 18,000 (20%) have mobility problems. As in any other country, public transport represents a huge challenge for this group. Mongolia, however, is making significant progress in this area – on 21st March, a new train which has been specially fitted to cater for wheel chair users was launched.  The new trains operate on local services, but not on long-distance and international services. The wheelchair-friendly service has been launched at the initiative of the Ministry of Transport and Ulaanbaatar Railway.
