Access to affordable, assessible and safe transportation options is key to creating and maintaining communities that are accessible to all citizens. Affordable, accessible and safe transportation options allow people to work; to attend school; to participate in family, recreational and church events; shop; go to medical appointments and more. It is something that many take for granted.

Join the Services for Independent Living for a free, one-day Ohio Transportation Equity Forum to learn about and discuss transportation issues impacting the lives of persons with disabilities and older adults.

Hear about innovative practices, creative solutions and potential strategies to address transportation barriers. Presenters include staff of the United States Department of Justice, Ohio Department of Transportation, Centers for Independent Living, and many more.

Reservations are required and should be in by October 13th.

Please note: This is a fragrance-free forum. Participants are asked to not wear perfume, cologne, scented powders and other fragrances for the comfort and safety of other participants.

A limited amount of funding is available to assist persons with disabiltiies with travel expenses.
