The Accessible Transportation Technical Support Project (ATTS)

 
   2012 ATCI team from Mat-Su Borough, Alaska.

In more than ten years of concerted efforts to help local stakeholders develop long-range plans, ESPA has helped over 100 communities create the changes they envisioned. Following their work with ESPA’s programs, communities have:


  • Created new transportation options by coordinating and maximizing existing resources
  • Developed one-call resource centers
  • Launched outreach efforts to  build community support for public transportation
  • Brought planners and advocates together to improve the pedestrian environment
  • Created travel training programs fostering the independence of people with disabilities while reducing paratransit costs
