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.

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.
