Transportation for People with Disabilities and Older Adults in COVID-19
January 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
Transportation services need to remain available and accessible during emergency situations for all, including persons with disabilities and older adults. Many challenges arose during the COVID-19 pandemic including impacts to available service capacity, scheduling trip reservations, service eligibility assessment, use of wheelchair lifts, boarding assistance, and wheelchair securement. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, January 30, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will provide actionable strategies for transportation organizations to use in emergency situations to ensure continuity of service for persons with disabilities and older adults. Presenters will discuss lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and approaches to safely maintain services during a future emergency.
This webinar is based on TCRP Research Report 243: Transportation for People with Disabilities and Older Adults During COVID-19: Lessons for Emergency Response (Pre-Publication).
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program.
There is no fee to attend this webinar. Registration is required.
A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
