What would it take for the Toledo area to be named the most disability-friendly community in the United States?

A disability-friendly community asks its citizens to become creative problem-solvers. If some of us have a problem, we all have a problem. When we solve it for some, we can solve it for all. Disability Dialog is your invitation to weigh-in on key topics, and offer your ideas and/or suggestions for solutions—the more creative the better!


Forum Policy: While sharing your experiences and ideas, we ask that you keep your comments respectful, constructive and encouraging.


Transportation is a requirement for full participation in a community. Adults with disabilities are twice as likely to have inadequate transportation and often depend on public transit.
