The physical disabilities' travel behaviors..


Chih-Yung Tsai

This study focuses on the self-perceived health conditions, activity constraints and travel attitudes of the physically disabled and their intentions and behaviors on traveling. Results show that increase in actual expenditures and frequencies in traveling become evident as their intentions to participate become higher. Furthermore, milder levels of physical pain lead to an increase in the number of days and frequency of travel. Therefore, this study recommends that travel providers should consider the travel intentions and health conditions of the physically disabled when planning travel activities. Such an approach can create reparticipation in traveling of the physically disabled and provide further recommendations and promotions of the traveling benefits to other physically disabled people.
