Transportation Initiative

Home | About Us | Our Initiatives | Transportation Initiative

Often, people with disabilities are not able to attend activities or appointments due to lack of transportation. Their options are limited and many are not timely, convenient, or affordable. The Transportation Initiative will increase diversified options for transportation through public and private entities, to ensure convenient, affordable, sustainable and efficient transportation.

Activities

Our goal is to increase access to transportation that is convenient, affordable, sustainable, and efficient. For questions, contact the Community Line at 303-858-2255.
