Accessible Meetings

Providing accessibility for all people, regardless of physical challenges, disabilities or age is an ongoing high priority for the local community, and as a result, the City of Eugene has received national recognition for their inclusive measures.

The National Americans with Disabilities Oregon Celebration Committee named the City of Eugene "the most accessible city in the USA" in 1997. In 2003, Eugene was recognized by the National Organization of Disability as a finalist for the Accessible America Award.

Knowing how important this is to you as well, we are committed to making it easy for you to plan fully-inclusive meetings for all your participants.


Oregon's Community Access Survey Team (CAST), a program of Lane Independent Living Alliance (LILA) under a Tourism Special Project Grant from Lane County, completed an accessibility survey for numerous Eugene - Springfield area lodging properties. Property listings include information on a number of accessibility features, including parking, elevator access, door clearances and more. 


Lane Transit District's (LTD) public transportation system serves the greater Eugene area. All routes are accessible and all buses are lift-equipped. Also offered is the RideSource program, a curb-to-curb transportation service for people with eligible disabilities.

The City of Eugene owns two wheelchair lift-equipped 15-passenger para-transit vans.
