News from Rutgers Satisfying Transportation Needs Will Improve Quality of Life for Adults on Autism Spectrum

November 13, 2015

The Rutgers report addresses transportation obstacles that those with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, and their families, must overcome to carry out their daily activities and offers recommendations on how to remove the obstacles. Many challenges are associated with transportation, such as the inability to live independently, reach employers and health care providers and even engage in community and social activities.

“Very little has been written about the transportation issues encountered by adults with autism spectrum disorders,” said Cecilia Feeley, transportation autism project manager at the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) and the study’s co-principal investigator. The center conducted the two-year study with the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers’ Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
