Surveys of Handicapped Persons in the Cities of Nuremberg and Fürth


For free transport or transport at reduced prices of severely handicapped persons in public transport, the traffic enterprises receive compensation payments from the government. In Nuremberg, the so-called survey of severely handicapped persons has to be carried out, pursuant to the provisions of section 231 SGB IX, every two years in all traffic branches, in four pre-defined periods. It is the objective to record the number of handicapped passengers, by interview and inspection of the type of ticket, in relation to the other passengers.

PBCONSULT prepares these surveys for VAG in the cities of Nuremberg and Fürth in four periods, organizes and holds the surveys properly speaking with its own well-trained personnel, possessing many years of experience, and takes over part of the analyses of the raw data for VAG.

In peak traffic hours, up to 25 interviewers at a time are employed for the interviews in the means of public transport.
