For many older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers who need transportation, simply finding out about the mobility options available in the community may present an insurmountable obstacle. Such information is often scattered among several organizations, requiring numerous phone calls to piece together the complete picture. Join the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) at 2pm EDT on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, for a webinar discussion of how communities can address the challenge of providing better access to comprehensive transportation information.
Our presenter is Roberta Habowski, Mobility Project Manager with Area Agency on Aging 1-B in Southfield, MI. myride2 launched in May 2012 as a one-call/one-click service offering mobility management assistance and consisting of a toll-free phone line and an interactive website. Roberta will share information about how the program got started and how it has evolved; funding sources; the types of issues handled; measures of success; key partnerships; and plans for the future.
