TRANSPORTATION

Transportation is helpful in maintaining employment, education, healthcare and community life. Transportation services will allow you to live independently within the community. If you do not drive, there are generally two options: public transit and paratransit. Public transit includes fixed route public transportation by bus, subway and light rail.

Paratransit includes door-to-door service for people with disabilities who are unable to ride fixed-route public transportation, including accessible lift-equipped and low-floor buses. There are taxi services as well as private companies that provide accessible transportation.

“Despise not any man/woman and do not deem anything unworthy of consideration, for there is no man/woman that does not have his/her hour and no thing that does not have its place.”

Ethics of the Fathers 4:3
