Traffic subsidy access made easier for disabled
by Hu Min
Shanghai is creating a more friendly environment for the disabled. From next month, disabled citizens aged below 65 years will be able to receive traffic subsidies without submitting any application.
All disabled residents aged below 65 years with Shanghai hukou, or household registration, are eligible for the subsidy.
So far, 270,000 disabled people have applied for the subsidy, with more than 20,000 new applications submitted each year, according to the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation.
