Accessibility attributes

Accessibility attributes collect information about your business to share with customers who have specific accessibility needs. Accessibility attributes currently address whether or not your business’s entrance, restroom, seating, parking, and elevator are accessible for people in wheelchairs. Learn how to edit attributes

Wheelchair-accessible entrance

Answer yes if the entrance to the business is approximately 3 feet wide and doesn’t have steps. 3 feet (or 1 meter) is approximately the minimum comfortable width for two people to stand right next to each other. If there are one or more steps, there should be a permanent ramp or, at the very least, a moveable ramp. Entryways that consist of only revolving doors should be marked No for this attribute.

Wheelchair-accessible restroom

Answer yes if the entrance to the restroom is at least one meter wide and can be reached without going up or down steps. If a person in a wheelchair would need to enter a stall inside the restroom, the stall’s entrance also needs to be one meter wide. (Remember, one meter is about the width of two people standing comfortably side by side.)

Wheelchair-accessible seating

Answer yes if the main area of the business can be accessed without stairs and there’s enough space for someone in a wheelchair to navigate to and sit at a table. If all tables are high (e.g. at standing level), the business isn’t wheelchair-friendly.

Wheelchair-accessible parking

Answer yes if there’s a parking spot specifically marked for those with accessibility needs. These spots are often marked with specific painting on the ground, placards, or signs (depending on your country and/or region).

Wheelchair-accessible elevator

Answer yes if a place has multiple floors and there is an elevator that is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
