Abstract

The New Freedom (NF) transportation program was established by the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU, 2005), as a formula program to provide funding for transportation projects designed to reduce mobility barriers experienced by persons with disabilities. Regulations stipulate that NF-funded transportation projects be developed through Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plans (CHSTP), that are developed jointly by organizations in transportation, human and social services, workforce development, labor and economic development, private employers, faith-based organizations and other organizations involved in the well-being of persons with disabilities, seniors and low-wage workers. This report provides an exploratory overview of mobility and perceptual outcomes experienced by users of transportation-based NF programs, based on survey-based information.
