Online Happy Hour: Disability in Transportation Discussion with Kelly Buckland, USDOT Disability Policy Advisor. May 10, 7PM ET

An event focused on initiatives related to the Disability Policies of USDOT. In Mr. Buckland's own words: "As a Disability Advisor at the Department of Transportation, I’m working across all types of transportation. And there’s a disability piece to all types – whether it’s bus, rail, or air transportation. We could be working on accessibility in restrooms on aircrafts, or the feasibility of people flying on planes in their own wheelchairs. And on the ground, we need to think about accessibility on sidewalks, curbs, roads, and street crossings. The pandemic has certainly affected the transit systems; public transportation really took a big hit when the pandemic hit. This fits into the recovery part of the theme because we need to get transportation geared back up – and we need to do that with accessibility in mind."
