Independent Living

Independent living, is a philosophy and a worldwide movement of individuals with disabilities working for equal opportunities, self-determination, and self-respect.  It stems from the fundamental principle that people with disabilities are entitled to the same civil rights, options and control over choices in their own lives as people without disabilities.

Easy opportunity to advocate!
(www.irrc.state.pa.us/…/meetings/02-21-2019_Agenda.pdf) for PA IRRC (state regulatory commission)

PA IRRC for hearing on accessible Transportation Networking Company (TNC) vehicles-Uber and Lyft mostly in PA. Thursday February 21, 2019 at 10:00 AM. Meeting location is PA Department of Education building (same as MLTSS) except IRRC is located on the 14th floor.

If you can offer comments or attend in person, this would help to advance the issue of accessible transportation with Uber and Lyft. PA IRRC contact information is below for further questions.

In most places, para-transit doesn’t cross county lines (with limited hours if available) or on evening, weekends or holiday hours which limits employment, healthcare and community life in general. This is another possible option though not a comprehensive solution.

Thanks.
