How Autonomous Vehicles Provide Accessible Transportation

Date TBA

Lauren Schwendimann, Waymo One’s Head of UX Design, and Emily Coleman, Superintendent of the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, will discuss the disparities the disabled community faces when it comes to transportation, and how autonomous vehicle ride-hailing services are a safe and accessible alternative option. They’ll cite examples of the challenges traditional modes of transportation impose on the disabled community, and the solutions AVs provide, increasing access to safe mobility.
