There is, however, limited knowledge of how precisely the needs of disabled people are defined and incorporated, or not, into the design and development for the accessible environment1. This study assumes that the accessible design in public places facilities are of benefit not only to disabled people but all people with the diversity. Thus the significance of the proposed barrier-free design is to focus on benefits of the accessible plan to a variety of people. Accessibility in public places has previously been regarded as an additional services designed especially for those who cannot manage ordinary facilities. Now to design accessible environment in public places is an important issue to maintain the sustainability of our society1. Therefore this paper aims to investigate the barriers and deficiencies for disable people found in railway station and then to provide valuable information on effective design techniques and principles for ensuring barrier-free accessible environment in public places.
