A Community discussion on transportation (Hybrid event)

This meeting is for individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and their families. No providers, please.

Transportation is a major barrier to access to services for many individuals with intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. Join our Statewide meeting, Saturday, June 3 from 10 AM to 12 PM, to learn about the innovative transportation program from Arc Mercer and Access Link Riders' Choice Pilot that collaborates with ride-share companies like Lyft and Uber. Individual and family advocates will have a panel discussion and share their tips for navigating the complex transportation system. We will be joined by Paul Aronsohn, NJ’s Intellectual and or Developmental Disabilities Ombudsman.
