Call for Transportation Innovations!

The National Aging and Disability Transportation Center is seeking transportation innovations targeted to the needs of older adults and people with disabilities. We know that many transportation programs across the U.S. have developed creative, practical and accessible transportation innovations. This is an opportunity to showcase innovations in your local transportation program!

All program transportation innovations submitted for consideration must have been in operation for six months or longer. “In operation” means that the program is: (1) providing rides to the target population as evidenced by data (e.g., number of rides provided, number or riders); (2) providing transportation information and assistance, mobility management, transportation counseling or a similar service to the target population as evidenced by data (e.g., number of calls handled, number of referrals or rides provided); (3) engaged in transportation planning as evidenced by data (e.g., adoption of the plan, engagement of riders and stakeholders in development of the plan, and support for the plan by riders and transportation stakeholders.
