Transportation as a "Related Service": Issues that Involve Transition Activities.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Missouri LINC.
The paper discusses transportation as a related service for students with disabilities expecially as related to school-to-work transition activities. First, the legislative and legal basis for providing transportation services is discussed in the form of answers to frequently asked questions: why provide transportation? what is the basis for transportation as a "related service" in providing transition activities? what is the current state of affairs when providing transportation? (four court cases are cited). Next, ecologically-based and alternative transportation options are discussed, including use of public transportation, car pools, walking, funding sources for additional transportation, and school liability issues.
