  • Considering and integrating the unique preferences of a traveler in navigation in transit networks may improve their travel experience, especially for travelers with disabilities.
  • Identifying and avoiding the inaccessible areas by considering the travelers’ preference provides a more realistic solution, especially for travelers with disabilities.

  • This study proposes a new normative approach to improve a traveler’s door to door travel experience.
