    BEIJING, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Beijing subway staff and volunteers will provide an integrated help service for the disabled during the Paralympics, said the Beijing Subway Operation Co. Ltd. on Wednesday.

    The company said disabled travelers would be able to call the subway service center with information on their routes, times of travel and transfer stations.

    The center would then inform stations, which would arrange staff and volunteers to help the traveler all the way from buying tickets to getting out of the subway.

    The company has installed obstacle-free ramps in each of the 123 stations. Disabled travelers can leave the stations in lifts, wheelchair elevators and stairlifts. It has also installed Braille information boards in all stations.
