Is ADA Effective? A Travel and Transportation Assessment
Principal Researchers:Wagner, M., Shirgaokar, M., Marshall, W. Many argue that the transportation experiences of persons with disabilities (PWDs) have improved dramatically since the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990. Though much progress has been made, many aspects of the current transportation system still limit PWDs from traveling safely and efficiently. Moreover, transportation planning and design efforts consistently lack PWD representation.
