I FILL A SEAT ON THE BUS

Public Transportation Project


The Ability Center is reenergizing its I Fill a Seat on the Bus Campaign to collect video testimonials from individuals who use public transportation in northwest Ohio to encourage people to vote for TARTA.

If you do not currently use public transportation in northwest Ohio but have a connection to the service, please also fill out the form. Awareness regarding usage and lack of resources for people with and without disabilities is important.

"I think we are almost the invisible to general society, I believe it's important to know in all walks of life that we matter no better way to be heard than voting. Fair and equal treatment and opportunities to improve our standard of life.

Most of the stores that I go to 5 miles or more from my home so I either used TARPS or a combo of bike or TARTA. On a fixed income, the cost alone took a large part of my income so public transportation is the ticket."
