Office of Mobility and Accessible Transportation
Across the country, transportation remains a top barrier to inclusion for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Accessible
transportation and mobility options are key components of community inclusion, so that seniors, individuals with disabilities, and others who use accessible transportation are able to access important destinations such as health care,
employment, and education.
To help address this critical need, the Tennessee Accessible Transportation and Mobility Act of 2020 created a new office within the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), the Office of Mobility and Accessible Transportation. The purpose of the Office of Mobility and Accessible Transportation is to provide resources and expertise for expanding and improving accessible transportation and mobility across the state.
The new law says that by March 31, 2021, the office will produce and share with the Tennessee General Assembly:
- A mission statement
- A five-year strategic plan, and
- The state's first annual report about accessible transportation in Tennessee
The strategic and first annual report can be found here:
