You are being asked to participate in a research study investigating the accessibility of public transportation for people with disabilities.  This study is being conducted through collaboration with the ADA Participation Action Research Consortium (ADA PARC) and ADA National Network. The purpose is to improve understanding of the accessibility of public transportation and use this information to make improvements as needed at regional and national levels. The study will examine the experience of public transportation from the perspective of people with disabilities across the nation.
 
Completion of the 50 question online survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time. Almost all of the questions are multiple choice format with some questions asking you to provide basic demographic information. All information obtained from this survey will be used to improve understanding and access to public transportation for people with disabilities.
