ABSTRACT

Disabled people have been generally invisible in the context of travel, though much improvement has made in legal and social environments. A structured survey was conducted with a convenient sample of disabled people to examine the relationships among constraints, learned helplessness, and intention to travel. Results revealed that three sub-dimensions of constraints did not exert any significant influence on their intention to travel. However, two of the three dimensions(i.e., intrinsic and environmental) were found statistically signifiant positive influential factors on learned helplessness. The helplessness exerted, in turn, a statistically significant negative influence on the intention to travel. These results and following discussions will facilitate more discourse on the travel behaviors of people with disabilities.
