Good evening all, I’d like to ask smarter minds than mine about the GTFS “stops.txt” file and the “wheelchair_boarding” field. The GTFS standard (https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs/reference/stops-file) says that the “wheelchair_boarding” field defines whether the stop (or parent stop) allows people in wheelchairs to use the stop. I was looking at the GTFS data for NSW, and 24 out of the 38839 stops had a value of “1” (Indicates that at least some vehicles at this stop can be boarded by a rider in a wheelchair).
This number seemed a little small: I thought most bus stops in the Sydney metropolitan area would allow people using a wheelchair to board a bus, as well as most train stations. Does anyone have any advice they could share with me about this? Thanks in advance for your help!
