Many people with disabilities move to or live in cities since they tend to have a higher concentration of social services and more comprehensive transit systems. However, the increasing trend to provide more digital services and adopt smart technologies can often increase barriers rather than remove them. More often than not, cities do not seek input from people with disabilities when new technologies are adopted. Smart Cities for All is a new initiative that aims to offer cities technology alternatives that work for all their residents.
