Abstract

Travel plays an important role in our lives, including people with disabilities. In 2000 approximately 997 million people participated in pleasure travel in the U.S. However, little is known about the travel patterns of families with a member who has a disability. The purpose of this study was to compare the travel patterns of families with and without a member with a disability. Results indicated that there were significant differences in travel patterns between these two groups of families. Findings also suggested that the differences in travel patterns among families with and without a member with a disability seemed to be related to family income, employment status, and race/ethnicity. The implications of the study for practice and future research are discussed.
