My name is Rachel. I am a wheelchair user travelling to Boston with my mum in May.
I was just wondering could anybody give me some advice on transport.
I have been to New York many times and each time, I had to pre-arrange accessible transport from the airport to the hotel as I can’t get out of my chair and into a normal cab; I assumed I would have to do the same in Boston, however the 1st company I mailed told me they couldn’t have a vehicle waiting for me outside the airport due to post 9/11 restrictions, but Ground Transportation would be able to pull an accessible cab from the ones they have waiting.
As it’s so hard to get an accessible taxi in New York, I was a bit sceptical about this; are there a lot of accessible taxis in Boston? If there isn’t doesn’t anybody know of another service that might bring me to and from the airport?
And while I’m here I may aswell ask, what do people think of Boston as a destination for a disabled person? Is it easy enough to get around?
