Transportation plays a key role in our society providing access to jobs, education, and a host of other activities.  Reaching demographic segments, such as youth, elderly, minorities, poor and rural populations, that are hard to serve continues to be a challenge. This session is a forum for selected leaders to highlight recent transportation accessibility trends, initiatives, and projects.
