Check out this Washington Post article reporting that new signs have been posted in the Washington subway system (called the Metro) highlighting the fact that not all disabilities are visible and therefore non-disabled folks should not scoop up the reserved seats just because they don’t see anyone around in a wheelchair. I like it and think it’s friendly and informative. Probably something I never would have thought of if I wasn’t chronically ill. I’m extra proud this is happening (first?) in DC, as it was my home city for close to 5 years and the Metro was my sole means of transportation.
Great job by the Metro’s Accessibility Advisory Committee. We all appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much.
