Our nation’s transportation investments are particularly crucial for Americans with disabilities, who disproportionately utilize non-automobile transit options such as rail, buses, and pedestrian-friendly development. The surface transportation reauthorization bill allocates federal funding to infrastructure repair and new transportation needs. AAPD works with a broad coalition of organizations to promote investments in accessible, affordable transportation that connects people with disabilities to employment opportunities, health care providers, and educational institutions, promoting full participation in public life.
