ATTRI Policy Roadmap for Development Policies to Enable Widespread Deployment

The Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) is an accessibility-oriented research project supported by multiple partners, including the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT); the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA); Federal Transit Administration (FTA); Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO); and the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). The goal of ATTRI is to use innovative applications to increase the accessibility of transportation for people with disabilities and to develop applications that help increase accessibility in transportation. ATTRI research is a multistep process with each step corresponding with a different task. This paper presents a policy roadmap developed based on the findings of previous steps and project work, which identified existing gaps in transportation accessibility. The paper and policy roadmap were developed by identifying existing policy gaps through a literature review, identifying existing gaps from ATTRI team interviews, identifying potential solutions, and analyzing and prioritizing those potential solutions. The gaps that are identified can be addressed by implementing policies that span a variety of timelines. The roadmap arranges potential policies and their respective gaps by temporal scales of short-term (one to four years), medium-term (five to nine years), and long-term (ten plus years) to create a vision for increasing accessibility in transportation. These policies include developing and implementing new digital accessibility standards, increasing the accessibility of the built environment, and identifying new ways to engage and foster support from stakeholders. This roadmap addresses a variety of challenges including digital accessibility, standards development, and resource identification for accessible technologies. This is task three of four in the ATTRI research process, a policy roadmap that builds on findings of previous tasks.
