Transportation Systems for All Users

This article from Canada highlights the importance of universal design in order to accommodate for the largest number of possible users. It provides things to remember when planning to implement universal design, as well as barriers that can reduce implementation. "Universal design should be comprehensive, meaning that it results in seamless mobility options from origin to destination for the greatest possible range of potential users. It should consider all possible obstacles that may exist in buildings, transportation terminals, sidewalks, paths, roads and vehicles."

Victoria Transport Policy Institute, Canada

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
