Please take and share the survey about the transportation system that serves people with disabilities in Ohio. ... See MoreSee Less

The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council, Services for Independent Living, Disability Rights Ohio and the Government Resource Center have developed a survey about the transportation system that serves people with disabilities in Ohio. This survey is open to everyone and will help these groups develop a better understanding of the real challenges people with disabilities face when dealing with transportation barriers. If you are a person with a disability, a family member, a provider of transportation services or anyone with a stake in the transportation system in Ohio, we invite you to participate in this survey. Advocates often use the phrase, "Nothing about us, without us," as a rallying cry for inclusion and participation of people with disabilities. Now is your chance to participate! The survey is offered online at each organization's website, or via the link below. Don't wait too long though, the survey will be open to the public until July 13, 2016.
