Portland State University’s College of Education and the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) are excited to reprise this 2nd annual interdisciplinary summit. We invite disability specialists, urban planners, engineers, transportation professionals, students, and community members to discuss the nexus between design, innovation, technology, and access. Themes will examine technological innovations that improve accessibility and wayfinding; smart cities; interdisciplinary approaches for intersections; unequal access to safe roads for those with disabilities who are persons of color; and opportunities for regional coordination across adjacent metropolitan areas, with an emphasis on the Cascadia region.
