TRB Committee on Accessible Transportation and Mobility (AME50)
The Committee's mandate is to educate everyone on the issues and gaps related to mobility needs for people with limited transportation options - people with mobility, sensory and cognitive disabilities; older adults; and individuals without private transportation. With a large proportion of our population reaching their golden years, the Committee is dedicated to ensuring mobility options that will provide older adults with a high level of accessibility and affordability. The Committee has a global focus and broad international representation.
Providing accessible transportation enables all individuals to participate fully in an active community life. Accessible transportation through universal and inclusive design is one of the key messages the Committee communicates to various groups involved in providing seamless, accessible transportation.
The TRB Committee on Accessible Transportation and Mobility works closely with other TRB Committees to collaborate and sponsor joint activities.
People interested in participating as a friend of the Committee or as a prospective member are encouraged to join us for our annual Committee meeting, or participate in one of our Subcommittee meetings (Policy and Practice, Research, and Accessible Transportation Technology). All meetings are held each January at the TRB Conference in Washington, DC.
