National Steering Committee

Easter Seals Project ACTION (ESPA) has been working with the disability community and transportation industry to increase the availability and use of accessible surface transportation for people with disabilities in the United States since 1988. Throughout that time, ESPA has successfully brought together representatives of these interests to serve on a National Steering Committee where they can work together to advise ESPA about the development and delivery of training programs, the design and provision of technical assistance, the production and distribution of products, the establishment of research project priorities and provide other counsel as needed.
