Travelers with Disabilities
For people with disabilities, Argentina can be a problematic country. The narrow, uneven sidewalks in many cities, not to mention the fast-moving traffic, are unkind to people with disabilities, especially to the wheelchair-bound.
Public transportation can rarely accommodate passengers with disabilities, though the capital’s newer Subte stations have elevators, and others are being retrofitted. Avis has introduced rental vehicles with hand controls.
Few older buildings are specifically equipped for disabled people, but many of these are low and can often accommodate people with disabilities. Newer hotels are usually high-rises, and disabled access is obligatory.
