In early December 2021, PacTrans PI and Professor of Urban Design and Planning at the University of Washington, Qing Shen, and a Graduate Research Assistant in the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Urban Design and Planning at the Uni246 versity of Washington, Lamis Ashour, delivered a webinar titled, Incorporating Ride-Sourcing Service into ADA Paratransit: Opportunities and Challenges for Public Transit Agencies.

Here they presented finding for an initial research study that was a collaborative effort with partners at King County Metro. After the presentation concluded, they were joined by collaborators: Don Okazaki, Community Access Program Administrator, Matthew Weidner, Senior Planning, Jeremy Trenhaile, Program Manager, and Casey Gifford, Innovative Mobility Senior Planner, for an extended Q&A/discussion time.
