A Townhall on Florida's Accessible Transportation Future; Hosted by The Able Trust
A Townhall on Florida’s Accessible Transportation Future was hosted virtually by The Able Trust on September 2, 2020. Every 5 years, the Florida Department of Transportation updates its long-range plan to adjust for opportunities and challenges that need to be addressed for land, sea, air & even space travel. Representatives from the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) Planning Team were on the webinar and eager to hear from Floridians about what is needed to ensure that individuals with disabilities and their families can live, work, learn, play, and raise a family in Florida. A majority of the townhall consisted of hearing from over 20 people across the state that had prepared comments regarding what is working well and what is not in the world of transportation and accessibility. Townhall attendees participated in the live chat and submitted questions. We have invited everyone to give input into the Florida Transportation Plan by emailing comments to Transportation@AbleTrust.org or by posting videos or comments to social media with the hashtag #AbleTrust. Comments submitted by September 30 will be forwarded directly to the FTP Steering Committee. To watch or listen to a replay of the webinar click on the image below.
