The Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) invites those interested in accessibility and efficiency in transportation to join work group members in a community perspectives webinar 2-3:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday, June 7. The webinar will explore regulatory barriers, funding and finances, and administrative barriers related to coordination and vehicle sharing at the state and local levels.

CCAM issues policy recommendations and implements activities that improve the availability, accessibility, and efficiency of transportation for targeted populations. Three CCAM work groups kicked off in March 2017 to identify and prioritize strategies to meet the requirements of the FAST Act. FTA leads the CCAM work groups.

In this community perspectives webinar, you are invited to join the CCAM work group members and hear from three communities about their transportation experiences. The webinar also will include a brief update on CCAM by FTA, with Q&A following the community presentations.

Registration is free. If you need assistance, alternative formats or services, please contact Zach Smith of the National Center for Mobility Management, (202) 496-4807. After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
