I’m upset with myself. And disgusted. I had a Physical Therapy appointment today. I didn’t go. Why? Because I was going to have to take the regular bus (fixed route service, it’s called), to get to my PT appointment, instead of the ParaTransit. That’s what I was told yesterday when I called to schedule for my appoinment. Well, I decided this AM not to go, because there are no sidewalks to the bus stop, and the bus stop is 4 blocks away. There are no sidewalks, and the bus stop is NOT wheelchair accessible according to the ADA, although, it’s marked as such.
Then I called Pierce Transit (the local transit company) and talked to Eligibility, and found out that I should have had ParaTransit (Shuttle) take me to my appointment, as it was scheduled between the hours of 9am and 2pm. I had been told the exact opposite. Sheesh! Well, now I know, so I can relax. And anytime I need to go somewhere, I’ll make sure and schedule it between 9am and 2pm.
