Transport is one of the key things that people with disabilities rely on frequently to get to their place of work or just meeting up with friends to socialise.
The issue for a person with a physical disability when it comes to public transport is the access facilities. This is because not all buses and trains have the right amount of space which is needed for a person with a physical disability to get about.
People with any type of disability can use taxi and transport services companies to get to places. The benefit of using transportation companies is that they have the right facilities. The disadvantage with using transportation companies is that you do have to contact them a day or two in advance to make arrangements, this makes it difficult for us to travel via public transport when an emergency arises. Also they can sometimes arrive late due to poor weather or traffic conditions.
If a person with a disability does not want to use public transportation or transportation companies to get to places they can have a car converted to suit their needs. This has become more common over the past few decades but a person with a disability would have to get the advice and consent from their doctor first to ensure that they would be alright to drive on the road by themselves.
Transportation should not be seen as an issue for people with disabilities, seems as there are quite a few options for us to use.
