Evaluation of RIAS on Target Population

Volpe National Transportation Systems Center will evaluate the Remote Infrared Audible Signage (RIAS) Model Accessibility Project (MAP). The Volpe National Transportation Systems Center will also submit two reports - a final evaluation report and a report to Congress (approximately 5-10 pages). The report to Congress will include highlights on: (1) the effect of the pilot program on multimodal accessibility in public transportation; (2) the effect of the program on operators of public transportation and their passengers; (3) the effect of making public transportation accessible to people with visual, cognitive, and learning disabilities on ridership of public transportation and use of paratransit; and (4) the effect of the program on the education, community integration, work life and general quality of life of the targeted populations
