Accessibility is one of the most important criteria in designing a public transport station. With poor accessibility, the disabled people confront more difficulties and challenges while travelling and using the public transport. Thus the objective of this study is to assess and then to compare the accessibility for disabled persons on rail transit stations around Klang Valley. For this purpose, this study proceed with a qualitative and quantitative approach where an assessment and a questionnaire survey are used as the means to collect the data. A rating system was developed taking the idea from QLASSIC to assess the accessibility of the rail transit stations and its facilities. It is found that KTM stations is averagely accessible by 50.32% and LRT stations is averagely accessible by 71.53%. Overall, both stations are accessible by 61% and its facilities is accessible by 69%.
