Building Awareness in Accessible Transportation: Transit Assessment Guide for Students, Families and Educators

This guide can be used as a tool to raise awareness about how people with differing abilities and preferences can use public transportation and the pedestrian environment around public transportation. The guide contains an accessibility checklist for students, families, and educators who would like to increase their understanding of transit systems and how people with disabilities use public transportation. Individual students, class groups or families will be able to take a snapshot view of accessibility features and identify areas for improvement while sampling transit trip. After using the checklist and determining the accessibility level of a particular transit trip, students, families and educators will have a greater understanding of accessible transportation. In addition, they may become more involved in community activities or committees related to local transit and disability topics.
