Goal 3: Improve access for individuals with disabilities to passenger & commercial vehicles

Accessibility of Technology

Vehicles are increasingly using more and more technologies. It should be standardized that Input/Output should be accessible to those with sensory disabilities. Moreover, with the development of self-driving autonomous vehicles, those new vehicles should be accessible for those with mobility disabilities as well. For example, a person who is blind or deaf should be able to enter a, say, autonomous taxi and able able to provide trip destinations. Likewise, a person in a wheelchair should be able to enter such a vehicle and utilize it. One of the biggest flaws of today's ADA is that taxi services and Uber/Lyft ridesharing are largely inaccessible. Let's not let this pattern continue into the future.
