Transportation is the key to independence and community participation. People with disabilities are twice as likely to have inadequate transportation, making it difficult to take advantage of economic and recreational opportunities afforded to the community.
- Many environmental barriers, like crumbling sidewalks, missing curb cuts, and hard to read signs may deny access to multi-modal transportation. Unlocking the Barrier: Investments in infrastructure must embrace Complete Street standards that meet the needs of pedestrians and riders of public transit.
- There are 27 Public Transit Authorities across South Carolina, but efforts to inform the community about their services are often lacking and inconsistent. Unlocking the Barrier: South Carolina needs new resources to fund local outreach campaigns for all Public Transit Authorities.
