Transportation Challenges for Ohioans with Disabilities
The Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center (GRC), through a grant from the Ohio DD Council, studied the question of access to transportation
for Ohioans with disabilities. Overall, the study found that obtaining safe, affordable, and appropriate transportation options can be
very difficult for Ohioans with disabilities. The
study’s results point to the need for further research, including an examination of the feasibility and
effectiveness of proposed improvements and innovations. Published July 2017.
