New Bus to Assist Disabled Riders in Fox Valley

News

It’s the first of its kind in the Fox Valley, opening up more opportunities for those who are disabled to take public transportation. 

Valley Transit has added the new bus that gives riders with wheelchairs and scooters more independence and letting them secure themselves without the help of the bus driver in only 25 seconds. 

Appleton Alderman Joe Martin, who uses a wheelchair comments on the new addition;

“For me, it’s freedom. It’s freedom to come and go as I please, and the nice thing about rear facing is that I can carry a conversation with people who are on the bus.”
