Please help me solve one of the problems I face in accessing accessible travel

If you have read my blog for some time you will see my yearning to travel. My roommate and I have looked for a functional means to travel, running into our main problem being as simple as transportation. Allow me to clarify: yes there is accessible travel resources, accessible transit options. I can hear you all saying: “Well, Laura then what’s the problem?” The problem, as I have hinted at before is this, very few companies that I have found, and this is maybe evident of my researching skills; but is it just me or is it hard to come by a vehicle that will carry two wheelchairs?

This problem is kind of like the problem I faced back in the first two weeks of December 2009 at which time this blog was born. But then, unlike now I had a sense of how to solve it. This time I stare blankly at the results pages of various Google searches bewildered, coming up with virtually no fruit for my hours of labour at this task.  I am urged forward in my quest by frustration, similarly to when I started this blog but then I knew that all I had to do was put up this little site nurture it and watch it grow.

So I am still left pondering this accessible travel thing, any ideas?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

    Have you thought about getting your license and getting your own vehicle? March of Dimes has a program to help and Bloorview offers a driving school.
