The Arc of New Jersey has partnered with the Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation to conduct a research study about how adults with disabilities use different modes of transportation.
We are looking for members of the New Jersey Self-Advocacy Network, independent self-advocates, and family members to share their stories about how transportation has helped or hindered their ability to get around.
