Enabling stakeholders to forge sustainable and accessible paratransit/fixed route collaborations that enhance access to work, support services, and activities of daily living. Towards that end, I'm leading the Demand Response team for the newly merged TRANSED/DRT 2022 conference (September in Seattle). TRANSED is focused on transportation accessibility (all modes) for those with disabilities. DRT will focus on Best Practices, MaaS/MOD and we will have a joint Microtransit workshop. Look for the revised Call for Abstracts at https://trb.secure-platform.com/a/page/TRANSED2022/TRANSEDAbstractCall
The 24th National Conference on Rural Public and Intercity Bus Transportation will be October, 2021 in Charleston, SC
The next TRB Conference on Demand Response Transportation is being developed for Sept 2022.
I'm also the chair of the IPATH Transit Committee. IPATH’s focus is to promote a common perspective among transportation and health policy professionals. https://www.ipathinc.org. Would you or a colleague be interested in IPATH? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
