Grant continues work to improve transit, sidewalk access

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and UB are collaborating on a five-year, $4.6 million federally funded project to advance physical access and public transportation for people with disabilities by bringing together computer science technology and the principles of universal design.
The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC) on Accessible Public Transportation at Carnegie Mellon and UB has received a new grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) that extends the existing five-year grant that concludes this year.
