BARBOSA, Adriana Silva. Urban mobility for people with disabilities in Brazil: a study on blogs. urbe, Rev. Bras. Gest. Urbana [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.1, pp.142-154.  Epub 15-Dez-2015. ISSN 2175-3369.

Urban mobility considers people and goods displacement conditions around the city. This study aims to analyze how blogs on disability portray the urban mobility for people with disabilities in Brazil. Therefore, a qualitative and exploratory research was conducted, in which posts of 15 blogs owned by people with disabilities were analyzed using the Grounded Theory. Recognizing urban mobility as a strategic condition for the inclusion of people with disabilities has been identified as the central category of this study, to which are subordinated sixteen subcategories, organized into five axis: the need for changes, feelings, effecting change, financial investments and consequences. These results show that urban mobility is considered by people with disabilities as strategic for their social inclusion and that blogs show their needs, claims, reflections, discussions and suggest solutions to the problems they face in their daily lives.
