Universal Access (UA) on Leeto la Polokwane, is about giving all people an equal opportunity to access a quality transport service.
In line with the UA principles, Leeto la Polokwane is designed to provide easy access to all people with a variety of needs.
The UA features on Leeto la Polokwane include the use of deployable boarding bridges to allow passengers on wheelchairs, and mothers with baby strollers to enter and exit the buses safely. The other features are raised tactile (textured) paving, beeping alarms, and voice announcements that guide people who have reduced vision and who cannot read.
An important aspect to Leeto la Polokwane is the provision of infrastructure for both pedestrians and cyclists. As a result, we have built about 18.01 km of Non-Motorised Transport (NMT) facilities which includes the pedestrian walkways that are dedicated to human powered means of getting around, like cycling, walking, skating, the use of wheel chairs and handcarts.
Our first NMT public infrastructure is on Lawton Road (Nirvana), Ben Harris (Westernburg) and Matlala Road (Westernburg).
The Leeto la Polokwane infrastructure aims comply with universal access design standards to ensure the safety and inclusivity for everyone using the system.
