United Spinal has long advocated for seamless trips between various transportation modes, especially, the last mile. If one segment of a trip is not accessible for a wheelchair user, the entire trip is not accessible. Not enough research has been done to guide efficient and effective seamless accessibility with intracity transportation modes much less with intercity modes across the nation. A university transportation center committed to this topic alone would go a long way in improving accessibility in multi-modal travel for all Americans.
