What if you could make traveling easier for people with disabilities by inventing a new app or technology-based device? Join this national online dialogue hosted by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) and share your ideas about transportation and technology. You can also share travel glitches that could be solved by a new app or device.
The purpose of the online dialogue is to gather input on mobility and transportation technology preferences and needs from transportation riders who have disabilities. By participating in this dialogue, you will assist leaders in the travel/technology field by identifying devices that could assist all transit riders— especially people with mobility, hearing, vision, or intellectual disabilities— to plan, navigate, and use transportation options in their communities, including safely walking around as well as getting from one station to another.
Participating is easy! Just take a moment to register, and then submit an idea, comment on someone else’s idea, or vote on an idea! You’ll see ideas posted by colleagues from across the country and be able to share your thoughts on technologies to help people better access transit. Maybe you will be the one to suggest the next big thing?
The discussion will be open May 15 – 30, 2014; visit the online dialogue site soon to join the conversation.
