For anyone with NMD or other disabilities, getting from one place to another can be a challenge. On today's episode of Quest Podcast, we will be discussing the various options in accessible ground transportation, from driving adapted vehicles, to riding on buses and trains. We'll examine the various modes of transportation, what systems have been designed well and which ones...maybe leave a little to be desired...and how YOU can get involved to advocate for improvements to public transportation.
To get involved in advocating for better transportation for individuals with disabilities, check out the information and resources below:
