"There are very few options for public transportation and the three taxicab services in our area are expensive and unreliable."
"Many transportation companies are transporting multiple individuals at the same time, so you may end up having to set aside multiple hours to [get where you need to go]."
"Reliable and safe transportation is needed. My son, who is supposed to never be left alone, was dropped off at the end of the day at a park."
This is just some of the feedback the Department of Transportation's new Wisconsin Non-Driver Advisory Committee (WiNDAC) will be hearing this month from people with disabilities and advocates. The committee was formed by DOT to discuss Wisconsin's transportation system to facilitate mobility, safety, and access for Wisconsin's non-driving populations.
