Coalition Meetings

The Ohio Aging and Disability Transportation Coalition holds meetings virtually every 2 months. These meetings are held to discuss systems change and advocate for better transportation options for individuals within the aging and disability communities. Individuals are given the opportunity to join others from all across the state of Ohio to discuss transportation in its current state, identify barriers, gain additional knowledge and connect with state representatives to make sure our communities are being heard. Due to the current increase in COVID-19 cases state wide our meetings are being facilitated virtually via Zoom Platform.
