Facilities For Disabled Travellers

The vast majority of physically challenged Johor people live in rural areas. Generally, it is the responsibility of families to care for and provide for their disabled relatives, and there is very little government help available. This includes a lack of services for physically challenged travelers, such as wheelchair ramps and elevators, and consequently, those who attempt to travel with disabilities in Johor can have a challenging time.

 

Travel & Getting Around

Johor is not an easy place to visit for people with reduced mobility or other physical challenges. The larger resorts and tourist attractions provide facilities for disabled people, but in rural areas, public transport is limited and often inaccessible to wheelchair users. Moving around the city can be extremely difficult for disabled people. The streets and pavements are uneven and few buildings provide ramps and handrails to aid disabled access. Guide dogs are rare and there are few audio signals for the blind at traffic crossings.

Public Transport

Johor has provide Johor Muafakat Bus which is a free bus service funded by the Johor State Government and Local Authorities as one of the initiatives to reduce people’s burden. 
 

The BMJ service has been introduced and implemented since April 2016 in the Iskandar Malaysia area involving 15 routes within the Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru (MBJB), Majlis Bandaraya Iskandar Puteri (MBIP), Majlis Perbandaran Pasir Gudang (MPPG) and the Majlis Perbandaran Kulai (MPKu). BMJ is equipped with CCTV system, GPS, Passenger data system and free internet facility (WIFI).
