Developed with transportation providers in mind, a new guide from the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) and the American Foundation for the Blind provides resources and information on understanding aging and vision loss, possible solutions to transportation challenges, travel training and orientation and what transportation providers can do to better serve older riders with vision loss.
A companion training resource for drivers is also available on their website.
The guide encourages transportation providers to invite older adults with vision loss and
subject matter experts to get involved in developing good practices for better serving this population. By connecting with colleagues, passengers, community stakeholders and vision professionals, transportation programs can ensure that the important services they provide are fully accessible to the entire community, including older adults who are living with vision loss.
