  • Are you a human service organization that is interested in enhancing your knowledge of accessible transportation services for individuals with disabilities?
  • Are you a mobility manager or transportation professional seeking to build your capacity to engage human services organizations in inclusive coordinated transportation systems?
  • Does your center for independent living or statewide independent living center want to learn about leveraging accessible transportation resources and building capacity around mobility management?
Easter Seals Project ACTION (ESPA) recently completed a series of three hands-on products that can help you in your work.

These products draw from knowledge gained from the Mobility Management Independent Living Coaches (MMILC) program, a joint demonstration program of ESPA, the Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living and the National Council on Independent Living.

For more information on these resources or the MMILC program, email Judy Shanley, ESPA director of student engagement and mobility management, contact her at (800) 659-6428, or visit
