Some local residents and athletes with disabilities were also invited to join the tour and experience a smooth operation of the barrier-free facilities in the city as the organiser expected suggestions on improvement.

In Guangzhou East Railway Station, the inspection team followed the whole process from entering the station, buying tickets, customs clearance, taking elevators, using toilet facilities and taking the train.

Eighty percent of checkout counters in the Teem Plaza will be equipped with tables measuring lower than normal ones so as to accommodate customers with disabilities.
