National Aging and Disability Transportation Center launches site

Posted on May 12, 2016

The National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC), the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) newest technical assistance center, launched a new website, www.nadtc.org, to provide easy access to a wealth of useful resources and information.

The NADTC, which promotes the availability and accessibility of transportation options that serve the needs of people with disabilities, older adults and caregivers, focuses on leveraging FTA’s Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) formula grants and other transit investments.

The clearinghouse offers the most valuable resources created through FTA’s investments in technical assistance supporting accessibility and mobility. Visit the site for free resources that support the work of public transportation, from frontline operators to board members. The website also offers online community forums, registration for upcoming distance learning opportunities such as webinars and online courses, and links to grant opportunities.

Since the launch, the NADTC has responded to hundreds of requests from FTA grantees, communities, and the riding public for information, technical assistance and support in understanding best practices and leveraging resources.
