NAD Releases Survey for Community on Transportation Barriers

By: Mary Pat Luetke-Stahlman

May 9, 2019 - The National Association of the Deaf announced that there is a new survey for the community to fill out. They’re wanting to know more about people’s experience using either the metro rail or flying.

“The NAD Policy Institute is studying deaf and hard of hearing people’s accessibility experiences across a variety of categories. Do you use the metro? Do you fly? Are you annoyed with problems when traveling due to barriers? We need your input! Please fill out the survey by May 30, 2019.”

NAD is focusing only on airplanes and the metro system in this survey. The person in charge of the survey was contacted for further inquiry about why NAD chose to focus only on those two particular systems when there are other forms of transportation that the community utilizes. NAD responded back and informed us that they intend to have more surveys in the near future but this is dependent on whether the community participates and provides ample data from this survey.

Their survey is titled Your Experience with Metro Rail and Airlines. (Click on the blue link to get to the survey) The deadline for this specific NAD survey is May 30, 2019.
