Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Accessible Transportation and Mobility (AME50)

Older adults and people with disabilities encounter barriers in accessing all kinds of transportation, leaving their mobility needs unmet for regular travel. Accessibility has to be included as a key consideration in order to a travel option to be equitable for more types of users. This poster session brings together papers researching a range of travel modes and trip options to assess the accessibility of available transportation for these user groups. Topics include wheelchair accessibility in vehicles, public transportation modes, differences between urban versus rural environments, pandemic response impacts on travel, driving status and changes in travel, and trip pattern behaviors.
