Summary from September's Meeting

Hi everyone! Thank you to all who were able to attend the monthly meeting! We had a engaging set of presentations from SPAN, Boulder County AAA, and DRCOG along with some great updates on e-biking and our Mobility Heroes. We also had a great discussion about potential issues individuals with service animals, mobility devices and canes may experience while using ride hailing providers and will follow up with the MAC for a more robust discussion in November. Thank you all for your participation!

Disability Mobility Initiative

National Week Without Driving

Join us for a Week Without Driving on October 2-8, 2023

What if taking the bus, riding a bike, walking, rolling in a wheelchair, or asking for rides wasn’t a choice you could make, but a necessity?

What would it be like trying to get to your job, the grocery store, your kids’ school, medical appointments, and other essential destinations without the option to drive yourself?

For people who can drive, and afford the increasing costs of car ownership, these aren’t questions that come to mind often. But for people living with a disability, young people, older adults, and those who can’t afford a personal automobile or gas, this is their everyday experience. We encourage you to listen to just some of the experiences of non-drivers, and the barriers they face, in the short video: Transportation Access for Everyone
