7I ADA & Taxis, Uber/Lyft et.al.
Have you ever been told that the ADA doesn’t apply to taxis, Uber, Lyft, and other transportation options? Join this session to learn about the evolution of applying the ADA to new and emerging transportation services and how you can be an effective voice in your community to improve access for people with disabilities. Accessibility is not only a concern for individuals seeking to use such transportation options, but is also of importance to any agency considering contracting with such companies to meet public transportation needs. This session is pertinent to ADA coordinators at the city, county and state levels, as well as any agencies or individuals with ties to transportation.
