ADA Transportation Survey-
We Want Your Views
DREDF is unveiling a short web survey, Public Transit Choices By People With Disabilities, as part of our transportation research
on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We hope many people in the disability community across the country will participate
in the survey, which can also be found at: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/882523/TransitChoices. Please take the survey, and disseminate
this notice so others take the survey. Your responses will help us understand what factors are most important to riders with disabilities
when deciding which transit mode to use.
