It’s been a slow day for the blog, so I thought I’d at least post this. I get the sense this survey is only intended for americans, but what the heck, I filled it out and it didn’t ask me where I was from, so they can do what they want with my data. It’s about public transportation, and since the ADA seems to have an effect on other countries’ accessibility laws, I didn’t think I was totally out of line. So here’s the info and link.
In conjunction with a grant received from the Federal Transit Administration, Meeting the Challenge, Inc. is conducting a survey designed to collect information from people with disabilities regarding their experiences with public transportation. We would like to invite all people with disabilities to participate. Information gathered will be used to determine what barriers still exist in public transportation for people with disabilities and will be used to create Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) technical assistance materials directed toward alleviating those barriers. This is an on-line survey which can be accessed from this link:
http://mtcinc.transit.sgizmo.com. It is estimated that it will take from 5 to 15 minutes to complete the survey. If you do not have internet access, you can participate by calling Meeting the Challenge at 1-800-864-4264 (select menu choice #2), Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM (MT), and a staff member will assist you with the survey by telephone.
If you prefer a paper copy of the survey, one can be obtained by calling the same phone number. Responses to the survey will be collected through March 31, 2009.
Please forward this e-mail to any individuals with a disability or to any groups serving individuals with disabilities that you feel would be appropriate respondents.
We thank you for your participation and assistance!
