Older Transit Riders Are Subject of Webinar on Transportation Needs
APTA has scheduled a free, hour-long webinar on “Funding the Public Transportation Needs of an Aging Population” for Wednesday, March 9, at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
The program will examine ways that public transportation agencies can prepare for the increasing demand for their services resulting from the growing number of older Americans.
Topics will include improvements to vehicles, planning, operations, rider information, and outreach; more and more targeted, flexible services; and universal design.
Also, David Koffman of Nelson/Nygaard Consulting Associates will describe the funding needs report he helped to prepare under the Transit Cooperative Research Program, comparing the capital and operating costs for 2010, 2020, and 2030, and explaining how transit agencies can use spreadsheets to make localized needs and funding projections.
