Strengthening Inclusive Coordinated Transportation Partnerships to Promote Community Living
The mission of this project, sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Community Living is to demonstrate the value that inclusive processes can bring to transportation efforts.

The Community Transportation Association of America, in partnership with Easter Seals, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, and Westat, is developing, testing and demonstrating ways to empower people with disabilities and older adults to be actively involved in designing and implementing coordinated transportation systems. Our goal is to support communities nationwide in adopting sustainable, scalable, and replicable models that include participation of people with disabilities and older adults in the design and implementation of responsive, coordinated transportation systems.
People with disabilities and older adults are members of the general public. Public transportation, therefore, must be able to accommodate their mobility needs within its overall goal of serving all Americans. We're pleased to present this special edition of Digital CT magazine that spotlights the important project and the resources we've developed on inclusive transportation planning. This issue also features the ongoing demonstration projects that uncover, document and evaluate the most promising inclusive transit planning practices.

The Strengthening Partnerships Environmental Scan
CTAA subcontractor, Easter Seals, led a consortium of partners, to conduct an environmental scan of current practices in the coordinated transportation arena, with a focus on those activities centered around people with disabilities and older adults. The environmental scan built on current knowledge about inclusive practice, was time-limited, and included voluntary interviews with transit and human services organizations, people with disabilities, and older adults involved in coordinated transportation systems.
