It seems I’ve met quite a few people in the past couple of weeks. I am hearing more about how giving up driving whether optional or not results in a feeling of isolation. Even though there are programs here in Denver some make it difficult to actually access services. Access-A-Ride is one of the main transportation providers. They provide a wonderful service for disabled and other persons unable to drive due to sight issues. The trick, however is that Access-A-Ride requires an in person interview. Now this would beg the question, if someone is disabled and cannot drive, how can an isolated person physically get to the Access-A-Ride location for an interview? Anyone out their have any ideas besides hiring a private service or as many do not want to do ask a friend or a family member for transportation?
