There’s nothing special about basic mobility needs

Monday’s Quote

This has more impact coming from the author’s own voice.

(sorry about quality, still processing)

Richard Devylder is U.S. Department of Transportation’s new Senior Advisor for Accessible Transportation and this was pulled from his comments (posted on YouTube) at the 20th anniversary celebration of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

That this voice, advocating that all modes and accessibility issues are equal and that all users deserve a “plan” and for their “functional needs” be met, is being heard at the top of the transportation food chain is a hopeful sign.

Locally, the crew at the Northern Michigan Disability Network is working on many of this same issues and is an enthusiastic partner with the complete streets initiatives.
