courses in medicine: one at the State University of Campinas – UNICAMP and Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas. For this purpose it was decided to analyse the stopping points of the public transport bus line 3:30 serving the Hospital of UNICAMP since this bus line has vehicles with equipment that allows access for people with mobility impairments. It was made a field survey georeferencing all bus stops and verifying for accessibility equipment, curbside cutouts, sidewalk conditions, tactile flooring, cover, bus schedule informations, etc. To perform the analysis was developed a Geographic Information System using MapInfo software (version 10.0) with the digital base provided by Campinas Municipal Development Company (EMDEC) which has as reference surface the Hayford ellipsoid, Córrego Alegre horizontal datum and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system. After the final analysis it can be concluded that none of the line bus stops has all accessibility equipments focused on the field survey. It is important to mention that the relevance of this study is not only by the results but by the small number of studies that deal with this very important topic for social inclusion.
