Goal 2: Enhance opportunities for people with disabilities to walk, roll, cycle, & use micromobility

Resources & Funding Guidance for Accessible Bikes, MicroMobility

There are few purpose-built accessible bike, bikeshare and scooters options available, and parts for modification can be difficult to find (for example, crank shorteners for people with limited range of motion, larger pedals or single-handed brakes). Accessible bikes, including trikes, tandems and side-by-sides, hand cycles, accessible scooters, and adaptive parts can be expensive for private purchase. USDOT could develop... more »

Electric mobility devices emergency recharge

When traveling through transportation hubs, for point-to-point travel there is a need for Electric mobility devices emergency recharge, typically a 110/120v electric socket. These are typically used by cleaning personnel in many locations, but are often blocked by seating or storage cabinets, or are in raised platforms. Unimpaired persons often [can more easily] use these sockets to charge cell phones and computers. Allowing... more »

Edge Lane Roads AKA Advisory Shoulders

Edge lane roads (ELRs) are a class of roadway which includes Advisory Bike Lanes and Advisory Shoulders. ELRs support two-way motor vehicle traffic within a single center lane and vulnerable road users (VRUs) such as bicyclists, wheelchair users, or pedestrians in the edge lanes on either side. Motorists may use the edge lanes, after yielding to any VRUs there, to pass approaching vehicles. ELRs are called Advisory Shoulders... more »

Transit Hub Design Accessibllity Considerations

Transit is morphing towards intermodal linked trips, where frequent fixed route (Bus & Rail) connects intense land uses. Suburban residential and office/industrial parks will be connected to transit hubs with less-frequent transit/shuttle routes and demand-responsive services booked using apps and call centers. Transit hubs are designed for easy, safe and quick transfers between fixed route transit, the demand response... more »

Fund ADA compliant sidewalks and bike infrastructure

USDOT should create a program that provides incentives for local communities to create ADA compliant sidewalk and bicycle networks. The program should consider neighborhoods that have been impacted by federally funded road building in the past in ways that made biking and walking harder or less safe.
