Nice: Disabled Needs

Nice Disabled Needs

Nice is a relatively disabled-friendly city. Signs mark disabled access for public toilets as well as disable parking. Nice International airport is designed with wheelchair accessibility in mind and offers passenger assistance that provides point-to-point transportation and assistance for persons with disabilities as well as for others who require assistance.

The services consist of wheelchair and attendant assistance. The airport features ramps, lifts, reserved parking, and buses with lifts as well as specially equipped minibuses and cars. There are also adapted airport shuttle serices (CCAS) which offers transport with ramps. Ulysse Transport provides an inter city service for those with mobility problems.

Trains in Nice have people with hearing and sight disabilities in mind, and wheelchair bound passengers are given designated spaces in the carriages. On boats and ferries between Nice and Corsica there are facilities for disabled passengers such as lifts and travelators. For disabled people in Nice looking to hire a car, try Hertz or Holiday Cars who have adapted vehicles and can be booked at Nice International Airport. Make sure to book well in advance. Cars parked in disable parking must display a sticker or an EU blue badge. Beware of cobblestone streets in the Old Town. Most hotels have disability access.
