Public Forums Scheduled for November on Transportation Barriers for People With Disabilities and Senior Citizens

Fairfax County is seeking comments from the public about barriers on public transportation at three forums to be held Nov. 1, 3 and 5. This will provide an opportunity for county residents, particularly people with disabilities and senior citizens, to discuss the factors that prevent them from using publicly funded transportation services, including the Fairfax Connector, Metro, MetroAccess, FASTRAN, Medicaid-funded transportation, and taxi services, including Seniors-on-the-Go! Residents also will be encouraged to offer suggestions about how to improve transportation services for seniors and people with disabilities in the county.

The public forums are scheduled at the following times and locations:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7 – 9 p.m.

    South County Government Center, 8350 Richmond Highway, Alexandria
  • Thursday, Nov. 3, noon – 2 p.m.

The forums are sponsored by the Fairfax County Department of Transportation, the Disability Services Board, the Area Agency on Aging, the Department of Systems Management, the Department of Family Services, the Department of Community and Recreation Services, the Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection, and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board.
