3. INDIA: JOURNEY BEYOND BORDERS

 
I
f the mystical land of India seems beyond the range of your disability needs, two disabled Indian men want to convince you otherwise. Anjalee Aggarwal and Sanjeev Sachdeva, who both have muscular dystrophy, believe that barrier-free tourism plays an essential role in integrating disabled people into society. In 1996, they started Samarthya to help organize tours for disabled travelers of historical, tourist and religious places in India.

4. SAN DIEGO, CA: NEW ACCESSIBLE BUSES

 
Kudos to San Diego’s MTS for FINALLY providing the city with lowered-floor buses. Let’s hope that these new models prove far friendlier to disabled people than MTS’ previous buses that used traditional lifts that frequently malfunctioned.
 
The new bus lowers the front door closer to the curb and then deploys a short ramp for wheelchair users. The ramp equipment can be manually operated in the event that the automatic system fails to function.
 
There are now 47 of the new models on the streets and more will be issued by the end of June.
