The ability to provide accessible and seamless transportation to persons with disabilities is critical to building inclusive and supportive communities. This is a fact we must keep in full view if we are to truly employ automated vehicles (AVs) and on-demand mobility services for the benefit of all Canadians.

While much has been said about the power of AVs and on-demand services to reduce congestion and produce cleaner roads, it pays to discuss how these technologies will also change the game for people with disabilities. In Autonomous vehicles: An accessibility game-changer, KPMG's Martin Joyce kick starts the conversation with a look at the future of mobility through the lens of those who might need it most. Topics include:

  • Mobility options for people with disabilities: Including broader public transit and door-to-door paratransit services.
  • The impact of AVs: And their potential to dramatically improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
  • Cost considerations: What governments need to consider when making way for advanced paratransit services.
  • The rise of on-demand mobility and Mobility as a Service (MaaS): And their potential impacts and advantages for all commuters.
