How can we make metropolitan Chicago a place where it is as easy for seniors and people with a disability to get around as it is for everyone else? Plan to join us for the release of MPC’s new blueprint: Toward Universal Mobility: Charting a Path to Improve Transportation Accessibility.
The report studies the challenges people with disabilities and the elderly face in accessing our transportation system, and delivers a set of recommendations that will help make the Greater Chicago region a place where everyone can get anywhere they need to, when they need to.
Risa Rifkind, ADA 25 Advancing Leadership, will moderate a lively discussion with:
- Adam Ballard, Access Living
- Jackie Forbes, Kane County Division of Transportation
- Judy Shanley, PhD, Easterseals and National Center for Mobility Management
- Audrey Wennink, Metropolitan Planning Council
MPC would like to thank Wight & Company for generously sponsoring this event.
MPC also thanks TransDev for sponsoring
