Rutgers faculty releases report on transportation for individuals on autism spectrum

Cecilia Feeley, transportation autism project manager at the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT), and Andrea Lubin, a senior research specialist at the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center, were two members involved in this report. They used current information, surveys and focus groups to identify that affordable transportation relies on employment.

Lubin said that for disabled adults in New Jersey, walking is the most common mode of transportation. Determining when to cross the street or being too anxious to do so can be difficult for these individuals.

Lubin and Feeley said that the barriers fordevelopmental disabilities or physical and non-developmental disabilities in transportation are still being researched.
