Mobility of travelers with disabilities including veterans and older adults is hindered by lack of accessible transportation options. A number of emerging personal mobility options can change this and provide better options for all travelers to get from point a to point b. Whether it be on-demand operations, virtual concierge travel assistance through mobile devices, or assistive robot, research in accessible transportation has gained new momentum in recent years as a result of USDOT research activities in cooperation with other federal & other partners. USDOT is beginning to identify and develop transformative transportation applications for all & those with disabilities.
