Untangling Transportation, Join the Call and the Cause

Ask any of us who are blind or low-vision to list the biggest barriers we face when getting out and about in the world around us and we will mention transportation. From late buses to cab/Uber drivers that act like they’ve never seen a guide dog before, to paratransit services that may not reach all over the town where we live. We will tell you transportation is a big deal.

Yes, some cities are known to have better public transit systems than others which leads to better paratransit access. For example, Austin, TX and the San Francisco Bay area in California are known for their efficiency.

Add to that the short or long wait times we experience or the number of days in advance of our appointments we must schedule our trips. Transportation concerns mount before us in almost every aspect of navigating life’s contours.

Well, here’s a call you will not want to miss. I heard about it through the American Council of the Blind of which I am gladly a member. But never fear, you don’t have to be part of ACB to jothe call and the cause with us. Here’s the scoop below the asterisks:


Untangling Transportation – Magical Advocacy in the Magic City: 9pm ET, 6pm PT, 3pm HT

Untangling Transportation is turning one in March, and we’re celebrating with a magic show. Sunday Edition’s own, Anthony Corona, will be joining us to discuss the work that two Florida Council of the Blind local chapters and others in the Miami disability community have been doing to advocate for improvements to the region’s paratransit services. Joining Anthony will be Justin Acoino, a student of Miami Dade Community College, and the catalyst for an investigative report by a Miami Herald reporter, which has helped to fuel local efforts to address paratransit challenges in the Magic City. Come and hear Anthony’s and Justin’s story, and get ready to learn how you can take on these challenges at home.
