The Nexus between Infrastructure & Accessibility: Case Study Support

The Mineta National Transit Research Consortium is engaging in a project to identify and explore, through case study analysis, successful strategies being employed by transit agencies in the United States to address infrastructure barriers impeding access to transit facilities by persons with disability. The result of this effort will be a detailed report documenting the strategies identified through the case study analysis. The report will be written to provide guidance and recommendations to transit agencies seeking to address this significant concern that is limiting transit access to a specific transportation disadvantaged population – namely, persons with disability. The National Center for Transit Research at the University of South Florida proposes to assist the Mineta team by providing additional resources and faculty to support two additional case studies for this research project.
