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.

This interactive webinar will focus on building the capacity of inclusive coordinated transportation planning by assuring that the perspectives of those individuals who are culturally and linguistically diverse are reflected in inclusive practices. Panelists will offer the experiences of transit and human services as they seek to engage an increasingly diverse group of participants in planning activities.
- Heighten learning regarding opportunities and strategies to assure that the perspectives of people with disabilities and older adults who are culturally and linguistically diverse are reflected in coordination practices;
- Enhance understanding regarding the organizational strategies that create welcoming and inclusive environments regarding cultural and .linguistic diversity for planners and customers; and;

Inclusive Coordinated Transportation (ICT) Partnership Project: Year 1 Evaluation
Prepared for the Community Transportation Association of America and the Administration for Community Living, United States Department of Health and Human Services by Westat. This report's goal is to evaluate progress made towards overall project goals and objectives in the project's first year.
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.
