10:00 – 12:00 Transportation Vehicles
Each year the Board holds one of its bi-monthly meetings in a location outside the Washington, D.C. area to discuss various aspects of accessibility and the work of the Board. These town meetings typically focus on topics that relate to the Board’s rulemaking agenda and allow members of the public to discuss issues of accessibility with Board members in an informal setting. They also provide an opportunity for the Board to visit sites and explore access issues in greater depth.
This year, the Board will travel to Las Vegas to conduct a town meeting on access issues of concern to the public and ways in which the Board’s various program areas, including rulemaking, technical assistance, and training, can be responsive to them. The meeting will be held September 12th from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30, with a reception to follow. In addition, the Board will hold a public meeting, similar to the one in July, on the update of its guidelines for transportation vehicles and will explore newer modes of transportation available in the area, including a bus rapid transit system, double-decker buses, and the city’s monorail. For further information on the meetings, contact Kathy Johnson of the Board at (202) 272-0041 (voice), (202) 272-0082 (TTY), or firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail).
