now has its first wheelchair-accessible taxi which means better mobility for
people with disabilities. Currently shuttle buses have wheelchair lifts, but it
can take more than an hour to get across town with the required
transfers. Handi-Ride shuttles drive people with disabilities right to
the doorstep or the grocery store or doctor's office, but they do not operate
at night. A-Plus Cab's wheelchair accessible minivan has a folding
wheelchair ramp, lowered floorboard and no seats in the middle row. Because it
still has bench seating in the back, the van can be used as a traditional taxi,
or it can carry a person in a wheelchair and several family members at the same
time. This is an option that Huntsville residents with disabilities have never
had before. Hopefully they will be able to expand this service in the
future to meet the needs of so many disabled members of our community.
