Project description: Ohioans with disabilities have difficulty obtaining safe, affordable, and appropriate transportation. In 2012, the Ohio DD Council funded the Athens on Demand Transit (AODT) project. This project has been successful in offering a transportation option in a rural area of Ohio (Athens County). To further these efforts, this project will conduct a pilot program, using technology when necessary, that allows AODT to provide rides outside of Athens County; and work with interested counties to replicate the project.
