CCD Transportation Task Force Autonomous Vehicle Principles
Nearly 1 in 5 people in the U.S. has a disability (more than 57 million). While 99% of public buses are equipped with ramps, significant barriers to accessible, affordable transportation remain across modes. Many people with disabilities are currently unable to obtain a driver’s license, and cannot afford to purchase an accessible vehicle. In 2017, 3.6 million Americans with a disability reported not leaving their homes.i An earlier Bureau of Transportation Statistics study found half a million homebound citing transportation difficulties.

CCD Alert on Public Charge Rule
On October 10, the Department of Homeland Security proposed the “public charge” rule. This rule would allow the U.S. to keep out people it thinks might use government benefits to meet their needs. The public charge rule will discriminate against immigrants with disabilities and their families trying to enter the U.S. (get a visa) or get a green card (become a permanent resident). It is critical that the disability community speaks out against this devastating rule before the public comment period closes on December 10th.
