Comments on Regional Transit Plan for Central Maryland

The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland offers the following comments on “Connecting Our Future: A Regional Transit Plan for Central Maryland”. Our comments surround the three themes of accessibility, quality, and equity. We applaud the goals and objectives listed in this plan. However, to reach these goals, the plan must also address needed policy changes if they are really to be achieved. 
Throughout our comments, we have identified several considerations missing from this plan. Because of these omissions, we strongly recommend that a blind person from a consumer organization, who has knowledge and experience with using multiple forms of transportation be appointed to the committee who will further develop the plan.
