While in Singapore, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation different from what they find in the United States. Singapore's Ministry of Community Development, Youth, and Sports (MCYS) is responsible for protecting the rights of persons with disabilities and implementing programs and services in the disability sector. The country has established a comprehensive code of standards for barrier-free accessibility, including facilities for persons with physical disabilities, in all new buildings and has mandated the progressive upgrading of older structures. Singapore allows guide dogs for the blind in public places and on trains, but the laws do not cover buses and taxis. Currently, 100 percent of public trains and 37 percent of buses are wheelchair accessible. All major pedestrian thoroughfares have curb cuts. All primary and secondary schools in Singapore are equipped with basic handicap facilities such as handicap toilets and first-level wheelchair ramps. Approximately 20 percent of all primary and secondary schools are equipped with full-handicap facilities.
