Project Description

Regina-MustafaWife and mom Regina Mustafa gave up driving due to vision loss. She needs better options for getting around Rochester without getting behind the wheel. “If you think not being able to drive must be frustrating, imagine it with two young children. Our public transportation system doesn’t make it easier. The local bus route runs so infrequently. We recently moved to be within walking distance of my son’s elementary school, but are farther from my daughter’s preschool. I could no longer walk her there and pick her up, so we withdrew her from the preschool due to the transportation issue. My story is hardly unique. Two co-workers also cannot drive due to physical limitations, and we often share tales of soliciting rides and coordinating sparse bus schedules. We agree: transportation change cannot come fast enough.”
