Southeast ADA Center: Transportation is covered under the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA) in Title II (public, state and local governments) and
also Title III (private businesses). However, what about new and emerging
transportation services? What about third party vendors, who are largely
considered private providers such as Uber, Lyft, and others? What about the
future potential of self-driving vehicles? How will these services and new
technologies be made accessible for people with disabilities?
On this episode of ADA Live!, guests Paul Simmons with the Rocky Mountain ADA Center and Geoff Ames with Meeting the Challenge, will discuss emerging transportation trends, the impact on people with disabilities, and the role of the ADA.
