Oppression is omnipresent among people with disabilities. It’s interwoven in their daily lives. They breathe, sleep and work with it ……….as if it were natural.
The fight for accessible public transportation seems to have been the crucible for the disability rights movement for much of the last two decades. Advocates thought that accessible transportation would be the key to free disabled people and to mainstream them in society.
When the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act passed, mandating that all public buses and trains be made accessible, Americans with Disabilities celebrated this new legislation.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees that people with disabilities have the same access to public services such as transportation as people without disabilities. To make bus service available to those with disabilities, many City transit authorities have equipped their buses with wheelchair lifts and other special devices.
Public transit authorities also provide ADA paratransit service for those disabled persons who are unable to travel using the fixed route bus service. The ADA paratransit service provides both curb-to-curb service..and door-to-door services
The spirit of the ADA is all about equal access and leveling the playing field so that Disabled persons no longer have to sit on the sidelines. But 21 years after the law was passed, we still see horror stories of a “Well-Intended Plan that sometimes goes horribly wrong”
