ILRC is looking for stories from people who are wheelchair users and have needed taxicab service in the of Santa Barbara Metro area but have been unable to utilize the service due to lack of wheelchair accessibility. Currently, no taxicab companies in the Santa Barbara area have wheelchair accessible vehicles.
Taxis are useful resources if one needs to go to emergency room at night, misses the last bus of the evening, or is arriving at the airport or train station after local para-transit services are available.
Unfortunately, the law doesn’t require that cab companies to have wheelchair accessible vehicles in their fleet, so it’s up to us to show there is a consumer demand for these cabs. The stories that you share with us will be passed on to cab companies, media outlets and elected officials. You can submit your story to firstname.lastname@example.org and please indicate if it’s ok for us to include your name if we share your words in public.
Thanks for helping, improve transportation options in Santa Barbara,
