The regular population's ageing, leaded to a decline in mortality and birthrate may affect the mobility of the whole population. Moreover, in France since few years there is a will to fully integrate persons with disabilities into society, in particular with the passing of the law of February 2005. This law reminds the need for accessibility to the whole chain of travel at all. In this context, the knowledge of people with reduced mobility seems nowadays essential. The objective of this research is to analyze the mobility of disabled people. This research is based on the French National Survey on Transport (FNTS) conducted in France in 2007-2008 by the Ministry of Transport and the National Institute of Statistics with the scientific support of INRETS. It is the data source providing the most transverse and consistent overview of mobility, whatever the modes and the transport situations of people living in France. This study should allow us to provide a detailed knowledge of the mobility of people involved.
