This webinar is an overview of Toward Universal Access: A Case Study in the Los Angeles and Puget Sound Regions, which is the fourth paper in our research report series examining the FTA Mobility on Demand Sandbox project in the Los Angeles and Puget Sound Regions. Check out the full research report here.
Approximately 61 million U.S. adults—one quarter of the adult population—live with some form of disability. Through the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), transportation organizations must aim to provide equal access to mobility for people with disabilities. However, equal access under the law does not always lead to access to the same services. Based on the FTA Mobility on Demand pilot project in the Los Angeles and Puget Sound Regions, Eno has created a set of recommendations for transit agencies and private providers on how to go beyond the ADA and improve access for all users. In this webinar, the report authors will discuss the study, assessment, and access to mobility options for all users with findings from the pilot project.
