We all need to go places – and access to reliable, affordable and accessible transportation is still a major barrier.
An estimated 25.5 million Americans have travel limiting disabilities. Of those of us with travel-limiting disabilities, only one-fifth of us who are working age report working full or part time. A big part of this is because of the barriers we face in transportation access. We experience significant barriers in vehicle ownership, trip frequency and socio-economic status. (ODEP)
In Washington State, 12.8 percent of our population has a disability that impacts our ability to access transportation. (WTN)
