20220420 Untangling Transportation – Dropping Off Kids on Paratransit

Each month, we untangle your most vexing transportation challenges, and this month’s conversation was an exciting one for any blind/low vision parent or guardian of children who need to be dropped off or noticed your way to or from work or somewhere else. Mike Greenwood is the Chief Operating Officer for Access Services in Los Angeles, CA, and late last year, Access Services launched a pilot program which allows parents with disabilities to make interim childcare stops while using paratransit as well as a limited number of same-day trips in the event of an urgent childcare need. Mike joined us to discuss the program currently operating in L.A., which could serve as an example for other paratransit systems to adopt in the future.
