Abstract: The humanistic characteristics of the urban environment depend on the mobility of citizens of all categories, including people with limited mobility, such as citizens with babies and children. In the given paper the problem of the mobility of citizens with strollers is studied, in particular, providing access by means of ramps to various objects of the city. It is pointed out that the mobility of citizens with strollers depends on a number of factors: the types of ramps, the types of chassis, the size of the wheels, the location of the wheels and the distance between them, the weight of the stroller and the possibility of folding. A special attention is paid to the problem of the discrepancy between the parameters of the stroller chassis and ramps. The practical study of the Russian market of baby strollers was conducted to analyze the size of the wheels of baby strollers and the distance at which they are located. The comparison of stroller measurements with ramp dimensions was made.
