Transportation Accessibility Institute
May 22, 2023
During CTAA’s annual EXPO, Transit Planning 4 All hosted a Transportation Accessibility Institute in Oklahoma City, OK. This daylong event provided eight teams from across the country an opportunity to discuss transportation accessibility, learn about inclusive planning, build partnerships, and formulate solutions to accessibility challenges in their communities.
TP4A welcomed applications from teams across the country. In order to promote partnerships and bring together important voices from different experiences and industries, each team had to include representation from people with disabilities, older adults, health care providers or plans, public transportation, local government/planning agencies, caregivers, and organizations that serve people with disabilities and/or older adults (CILs, AAAs, UCEDDs, ADRCs, Assistive Technology Act Programs, CCH’s).
In the morning, the TP4A partners gave presentations on inclusive planning and accessibility, and in the afternoon, teams worked together to identify solutions to transportation accessibility issues and challenges. In this summary, you’ll find an overview of those discussions, as well as an in-depth look at some of the specific challenges and solutions that these teams came up with.
