Happy Hour: Accessibility in Transportation

(EDT, UTC-04) (EDT, UTC-04)


Mark your calendars and join us for an event focused on initiatives related to the Disability Policies of USDOT with special guest Kelly Buckland, Disability Policy Advisor.

In Mr. Buckland's own words: "As a Disability Advisor at the Department of Transportation, I’m working across all types of transportation. And there’s a disability piece to all types – whether it’s bus, rail, or air transportation.

We could be working on accessibility in restrooms on aircrafts, or the feasibility of people flying on planes in their own wheelchairs. And on the ground, we need to think about accessibility on sidewalks, curbs, roads, and street crossings.

The pandemic has certainly affected the transit systems; public transportation really took a big hit when the pandemic hit. This fits into the recovery part of the theme because we need to get transportation geared back up – and we need to do that with accessibility in mind."

This event is FREE to attend. Sign up to attend and you will be sent the Zoom link 24 hours before the event. See you there!
