dRC Voices Need for Affordable & Accessible Transportation

On June 16, 2017 dRC submitted comments on the draft FAMPO Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), a document that guides regional transportation planning. Citing the need for increased attention to developing affordable and accessible transportation options for people with disabilities, dRC advocated for the following in the UPWP:

  • Study of the feasibility of a regional on-demand paratransit system
  • Appointment of representatives of people with disabilities to the Citizens Transportation Advisory Group
  • Review of the Human Services Mobility Plan to identify transportation gaps for people with disabilities, older adults, and those who are low-income
  • Accessible formats for information conveyed to the public
