Transportation Issues

January 10, 2004

Dear members,

The Greater Hartford Transit District ADA Paratransit Advisory Committee has asked that we send this to those on our mailing list. We are sending this information so that blind people will have the information to become more proactive in transportation issues in Connecticut. The attached Dial-A-Ride Legislative Fact Sheet is self-explanatory. Following this letter is a list of all district directors of ADA Paratransit District Offices. By federal law, each district should have an ADA paratransit committee. If your district does not, you can assist in creating one. If there is a committee in your district and there are openings for members, you can join and become active in carrying out the mission of your district. If there are no openings for members, know that these meetings are open to the public and that ADA-eligible people can be transported to the meetings free of charge.

Marcia Baran, vice-chairperson of the Greater Hartford Transit District ADA Paratransit Advisory Committee, asks that people who become active in their district committee meetings be in touch with her.

Sincerely,

Alfonse DeLucia, President
National Federation of the Blind of CT
