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.

THE VENUE: SMITH MEMORIAL STUDENT UNION
The event is hosted on the second floor of the Smith Memorial Student Union on the Portland State University (PSU) campus at 1825 SW Broadway, Portland, OR 97201 [map].

TRAVEL TO PSU CAMPUS
We recommend using Portland's public transit system, TriMet, as the quickest and pain-free option. Portland’s light rail runs from the PDX Airport to downtown Portland.  MAX trains depart from the airport every 15 minutes on weekdays. Weekend trains run less frequently; every 20-25 minutes. Trains depart the airport from 5am to 11:45pm. Passes can be purchased at the vending machines inside the airport, or through the TriMet Tickets App.

----->To Downtown:  Take the RED line MAX light rail train (toward Portland City Center & Beaverton TC).
----->To PSU:  Once downtown, get off at the Mall/SW 5th Ave MAX Station. Transfer to the GREEN line MAX at Pioneer Courthouse Square/SW 5th Ave (toward City Center/PSU). Get off at PSU/5th & Mill St.
