Transport Hurdles Major Problem
A report done by Cornell University showed an approximate 12.8% of people had some concern regarding transport. People who have physical limitations cited a problem 6.9% of the time. This might seem like a small percentage but it’s still a major portion of people.
One of the major problems regarding transport is financing. A source that fits in a person’s budget is essential to finding reliable employment. Non-emergency transport can be an option depending on the area which you reside.
Another big problem without transportation could mean that a person with a physical/mental challenge has to rely on a support system to reside. This can cause stressors for the person who is physically/mentally challenged emotionally, socially, and physiologically.
This is why advocacy topics for people with mental/physical challenges are crucial. It is important for people with physical/mental challenges to know their limits in order to advocate effectively. Remember to work together with a physically/mentally challenged person to advocate properly for transport barrier solutions.
