Freedom to Travel

Bureau of Transportation Statistics

The 2002 National Transportation Availability and Use Survey was designed to identify the impact of transportation on the work and social lives of people with disabilities, and the extent to which such impact is unique to that population. The survey topics include:

  • the number of people with disabilities who never leave their homes because of transportation inadequacies;
  • the types of transportation people with disabilities use for local and long-distance travel;
  • their level of satisfaction with the system's ability to provide safe, accessible, reliable, efficient, affordable transportation;
  • and the barriers or challenges that are posed by the transportation environment, infrastructure, or vehicles.
