CCD Transportation Autonomous Vehicle Principles
At least 1 in 4 people in the U.S. has a disability (more than 61 million). While 99% of public buses are equipped with ramps, significant barriers to accessible, affordable transportation remain across modes. Many people with disabilities are unable to obtain a driver’s license or cannot afford to purchase both a vehicle and the retrofitted adaptations to make it accessible.
