About the Webinar

In this webinar, Eric Lind and Saumya Jain with CTS's Accessibility Observatory talked with hosts State Smart Transportation Initiative (SSTI) about a collaborative effort to document access to opportunity at a national scale with the release of the 2021 Access Across America report. One of the project’s sponsors, Maryland DOT, shared their perspective on using the resulting data in state performance measurement and local planning. Highlights from recent national trends were combined with discussion of what’s next for Access Across America.
