This paper aims at presenting a research roadmap for the short (2015), mid (2020) and long term (2030) in the area of Public Transport (PT) accessibility, as an outcome of the ACCESS2ALL FP7 research project. For the definition of this roadmap, first, specific goals were set per time horizon. Then, the most important research topics in the area were identified and prioritized. Moreover, experts in the area have been consulted on existing and missing research in accessible PT. Finally, a set of priority issues has emerged, which were described in detail and presented as a roadmap for the coming years.
