Public Transit and Disability

Whether you ride the rails or roll on the wheels, getting where you need to go takes constant effort. Today we focus on transportation problems for people with disabilities. The issues are universal but the devilish details reside in the bay area of California. If you gotta go, you gotta go, but where’s the restroom? Is it open, accessible? And the latest problem, are the BART cars of the future a giant leap backward for people with disabilities? We talk to Peter Mendoza, community organizer at Independent Living Resource Center of San Francisco, about the progress for people with or lack of it since the transit protests of the late 1970s. With an interview with Linda (Ant Buddy) Picton, a Sonoma County activist bus rider. Both are long time public transit users and all-round activists. Sheela Gunn-Cushman and AdrienneLauby host.
