More Mobility, Stronger Connections: Using Transactional Data Specifications Webinar – Part 1
May 4 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION & INFORMATION

Join NADTC and AARP’s Public Policy Institute in the first of a 2-part series on Transactional Data Specifications (TDS).

Demand-response transportation (DRT) often fills the gaps in transportation for those who cannot drive.  DRT is typically door-to-door service and can include Dial-a-Ride, ADA complementary paratransit, volunteer driver programs, or even taxis and ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft. For the customer, scheduling on one or many of these options can be difficult.  That’s where TDS comes in.

Improving Access for All: Bringing On-Demand Technology to Paratransit
May 5 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION & REGISTRATION

Paratransit has been a staple of public transportation since the Americans with Disabilities Act became law in 1990. For people with disabilities, this service has enabled them to access their community when unable to use fixed-route transportation due to physical barriers. However, the high cost per trip, the long reservation lead times, and unreliable travel time has limited its appeal and has pushed agencies and riders alike to yearn for a better alternative.

On-demand transportation has transformed urban mobility, and recent success with pilot projects in Denver and Boston hint at the potential to transform paratransit as well, bringing a new level of mobility to people with disabilities. Join the Eno Center for Transportation for a deeper look into the future of paratransit as we discuss how on-demand transportation could play a central role with panelists from Denver RTD, MBTA, Easterseals, and Uber.
