LTD Hosts Accessibility Delegation from Bahrain

May 2, 2024

On Wednesday, May 1, Lane Transit District hosted a delegation from Bahrain. During their time in Eugene, the delegation used public transit and came to LTD's Eugene Station to learn about how innovations implemented at LTD help support the needs of older adults and people with disabilities. They learned about LTD’s historic commitment to accessibility, and shared the current challenges and opportunities in the Persian Gulf island’s public transit system.  

“It’s humbling to have leaders from near and far join us in Eugene to advance transportation for people with disabilities,” said John Ahlen, LTD’s Mobility Services Manager. “Bahrain’s delegation is well-positioned to promote accessibility and implement policy level changes, and I’m grateful to have learned from them during their time here.”

The group was joined by Susan Sygall, CEO and co-founder of Mobility International USA, and MIUSA staff. The Bahraini delegation included disability leaders and government representatives including Nader Al Markhi from the Ministry of Social Development, and Ahmed Jahrami from the Bahraini Association for Intellectual Disability and Autism.
