    • Abstract:
      In November 1998, the Subcommittee on Transportation Research and Development (R&D) of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) released the first Federal Transportation Technology Plan. This plan presents initial implementation strategies for the private-public partnerships identified in the 1997 NSTC Transportation Science and Technology Strategy. Among these partnerships, that on "Accessibility for Aging and Transportation-Disadvantaged Populations" addresses the accessibility and mobility needs of the elderly, the poor, and persons with disabilities. This concern is a central focus of agencies with transportation responsibilities and an Administration priority. This Implementation Plan presents the planning and programmatic activities of partners in the accessibility initiative. It describes the partnership's vision, goals, and outcomes and the efforts that will help to achieve them. As such, it provides a framework for ongoing interagency planning and for coordination with the private sector; state, local, and tribal governments; and other organizations. The ultimate goals of this plan are to (1) create transportation systems that serve the needs of older and transportation-disadvantaged people while taking full advantage of existing services, resources, and development patterns; (2) promote development of transit-compatible communities; and (3) expand opportunity by preserving communities and enhancing transit.
