ACCESS | MOBILITY OVERVIEW

Getting around is a cinch for most of us who own a personal vehicle or can easily access public transportation. But many Americans lack workable transportation options due to age, limited physical ability, constrained income or—for one reason or another—not having a valid driver’s license. In rural, sparsely populated areas, choices are even more limited. State legislatures play an important role in facilitating transportation access and mobility for all kinds of users. See our resources on state policies related to aging in place, mobility management, insurance for paratransit, volunteer drivers, school buses and special needs transportationinteragency coordination and transportation innovations across the board.
