Building a Continuum of Accessible Transportation Services in Higher Education
Judy Shanley – Student Engagement & Mobility Management, Easter Seals Transportation Group
As higher education campuses blend into communities, the need for students, including Veterans, to have access to transportation is important. Easter Seals Project ACTION funded by the Federal Transit Administration, works with K12, higher education, and public transit to build transportation continuums for people with disabilities. We are interested in learning about your successes, challenges, and ideas regarding transportation services across your campus and beyond.
