DRP Persuades the City of Pittsburgh to Modify its Transit Project to Maintain Reserved Residential Parking Spot

DRP assisted a man with mobility impairments in convincing the City of Pittsburgh to modify its bus rapid transit project to avoid removal of his reserved residential parking space, which is critical to ensure his access to the community.  Initially, the man was notified by the City that the bus rapid transit project would lead to the elimination of parking in front of his home.  He reached out to DRP for assistance.   After DRP contacted the City’s ADA Coordinator, the City confirmed that it modified the bus rapid transit project to avoid the need to remove the man’s reserved parking space.  Upon notification that he would be able to maintain his reserved parking space, the man expressed his gratitude and relief that he would be able to continue to live in his home.
