The Easter Seals organization has a long history of providing support and resources for disabled persons. Recently, Easter Seals reached out to TAPS Public Transit for help in illustrating how public transportation meets the needs of the disabled.
Through its North Texas Travels initiative, Easter Seals North Texas teaches Veterans, individuals with disabilities, their advocates and peers how to safely and confidently utilize public transportation. With North Texas Travels, traveling independently is now possible.
This week, TAPS helped organize a photo shoot to help illustrate how public transportation is a viable resource for disabled persons in the region. With the help of volunteers, the Easter Seals team photographed a number of scenarios that will show just how accessible public transportation is in North Texas.
