Accessibility woes

Posted By on Tue, May 29, 2018 at 9:45 AM

Please, PLEASE, do not advertise that you are a fully accessible restaurant or store if your idea of accessibility is seating someone who uses a wheelchair in the dark corner of the restaurant where it is everyone else’s last choice and where cutlery is rolled to sit or having a second floor of the store they cannot access. Just say that! Just be real! My sibling is a person who lives with a disability and uses a wheelchair and it is a big production to go on outings via Access-A-Bus because you always have to book far in advance and it is not as easy as going down the street to another restaurant once you arrive. Things like one tiny set of stairs can make a huge difference! We all need to do better for people that have to consider accessibility constantly. It needs to be MANDATORY.
