ADA Center - PR Campaign
To make more people aware of the existence of the Rocky Mountain ADA Information Center and its capabilities, the External Communications and Outreach division is actively engaged in a PR campaign with a goal of reaching every business, city government, and disability organization in our six state region over the coming years. Evidence has shown that individuals and organization that work with Meeting the Challenge ultimately move toward ADA implementation. However, until individuals and organizations are aware of our capabilities, they cannot connect with us.
ADA Center Newsletters
Meeting the Challenge publishes a traditional newsletter covering current information related to the ADA three times each year. This printed newsletter is distributed to a mailing list throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
We also publish a monthly electronic newsletter. This allows us to distribute breaking news about the ADA to subscribers throughout the region and beyond.
ADA Center Regional Leadership Network
The Rocky Mountain region is geographically large and relatively sparsely populated. This makes reaching the entire region in our ADA Information Center project very difficult. To alleviate this problem, we created the regional ADA Leadership Network. Members of the network are required to study a curriculum covering all aspects of the ADA and maintain their level of expertise to be a member of the network. In exchange, network members may request funds from MTC to support training and other activities in their area to further understanding and implementation of the ADA.
Federal Transit Administration - Transportation Information Portal
As part of the Federal Transit Administration ADA Materials Development project, MTC was convinced that a valuable tool would be a one-stop resource allowing access to ADA-related transportation materials,
geared for different audiences. We designed an electronic document portal that takes advantage of
the increasing use of the Internet for information retrieval. MTC used its experience in developing more
general purpose document portals to facilitate this development effort. The new transit portal can be accessed at www.transitaccessproject.org.
