Worst to First: Transportation Access for Older Adults, People with Disabilities and Non-Drivers

June 7, 2012 | 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Loudermilk Center for the Regional Community | 40 Courtland Street, NE | Atlanta, GA 30303

Last year the Atlanta region ranked worst among large metro areas for access to transit for older adults, persons with disabilities and non-drivers. But regional leaders have worked hard to create transportation alternatives. There are more options today than ever before and more are on the way.

Join us for a day-long summit to discuss what works and what else will increase transportation options to move Atlanta from worst to first. Presenters include:

  • David Goldberg, Transportation for America
  • Dan Dirks and Joanne Hutchinson, Community Transportation Association of America
  • Virginia Dize, National Center on Senior Transportation, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging
  • Panel of local experts

Be a part of the discussion on innovative strategies and mobility management, followed by an in-depth workshop on the Regional Transportation Referendum.

Registration online is required. Deadline: May 31, 2012.
