This work is the result of research carried out by an initiative group in the city of Rivne to assess the accessibility of the transport environment for people with disabilities. It was monitored of the rights of people with disabilities to access transport services to study the accessibility of vehicles for such people. Monitoring was carried out by means of questionnaire method, conduct survey, registration (observation) and expert evaluation. The questionnaire was attended by 100 people, among them: disabled people with diseases of the musculoskeletal system (20 people); visually impaired people (28 people); hearing impaired people (22 people); parents of children with cerebral palsy and autism (30 people). The monitoring results are presented in the form of graphs, tables and diagrams. Based on the expert assessment, a summary table of indicators with recommended for evaluating the accessibility of transport system elements was obtained. A list of priority measures was proposed to create an accessible urban transport environment. The results of the monitoring are the basis for further investigation of the problem of transportation of people with disabilities.
