What the Project Offers

What the Project Offers

The project’s goal is to support communities nationwide in adopting proven, sustainable, and replicable models that include participation of people with disabilities and older adults in the design and implementation of coordinated transportation systems that are responsive to their needs. We offer an array of information and resources to support these efforts.

Local community teams design and implement ways to engage older adults and people with disabilities in the transportation planning process. The project regularly conducts an application process that allows for organizations with inclusiveness in place, or looking to implement inclusiveness, to receive funding and support to further the reach of their engagement.

Inclusive Planning Guide

The TP4A website houses a number of materials related to planning, designing, implementing and furthering inclusive planning in transportation planning. Foremost is the Inclusive Planning Guide.

The Guide represents a framework for evaluating where your organization is in terms of inclusion and how to further develop and sustain inclusion practices.
