Goal 2: Enhance opportunities for people with disabilities to walk, roll, cycle, & use micromobility
Please share your ideas for enhancing opportunities for people with disabilities to walk, roll, cycle, and use micromobility services to the greatest extent possible.
DOT's areas of emphasis include:
• Deployment: Advance implementation of multimodal innovation, network connectivity, and mobility technologies to accommodate people with disabilities safely.
• Pedestrian: Consider pedestrian access throughout the transportation planning, engineering, and construction process. This includes roadside infrastructure, grade separated paths, and accessible pedestrian signals at intersections.
• Bicycles: Enhance adaptive bicycle and scooter accessibility for private ownership, rental, and shared mobility uses.
• Micromobility: Remove unnecessary barriers for powered and adaptive micromobility devices to increase mobility and accessibility.
Promoting equal access to non-vehicular transportation modes is key to achieving a fully accessible transportation system that promotes complete trips for all. Barriers can be removed through research and innovations that create an environment that permits and supports access to non-vehicular modes.
