Road & Rail Trips for Wheelchair Users
 
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 2PM ET

Not all trips require a flight, and wheelchair users can gain a new perspective on America by taking a road trip or traveling by rail. Before embarking on such a trip, wheelchair users should understand what the experience will entail and how to plan for some of the potential accessibility challenges. This webinar considers the travel experience, with particular focus on accessible ground transportation including private and rented vehicles, intercity bus services and long-distance rail.

John Morris is one of the foremost experts in the field of accessible travel, drawing from his experience of nearly one million miles flown as a wheelchair user and triple amputee.

This event is FREE to attend.
