God works in mysterious ways, and with God’s blessings I stumbled on a transportation site . A site popped up “Metro Lift”. I looked I read and was surprised they offered help to the handicap community. I dialed the phone number, a caring voice answered the phone, polite, very helpful, and I explained my situation and asked if she knew how I can get help. Yes she explained all I needed was to fill an application, which she even offered to mail to my residence. Yes within 3 business days I received the application in the mail. I completed it and mailed back.
Promptly within a week I was given an appointment for an interview. It was January the 9th Jan 2007. I was nervous and on a wheelchair, my cousin drove to the Metro office. The courteous staff welcomed me and few others with similar situations. We all were given a briefing about the program and how it worked. Instant pictures with ID Cards were given to all.
We all are required to book rides a day in advance. We are picked up from our doorstep and taken to the addresses we provide. A city that cares, respect the disabled, handicap needy residence. I am one of the users and I appreciate this great service, it made my life good and so very independent. I use the service 5 days a week, rides to supermarkets or doctor appointments, every time I need the help the service is there for me. At a fraction of the cost I get unlimited rides. The courteous drivers, always ready with a helping hand when ever needed.
I sincerely thank the city and the courteous Metro Lift staff from deep down my heart. My living has been made so much easier and independent to live.
