This time last year I was in a cast and on crutches. The metro was not an issue for me because I was catching a taxi to work each day and getting a ride home with a fellow worker who was going out of his way to do it.
After 4.5 months on those damn crutches I eventually got out of the cast and then did 3 months with a walking stick. During that 3 months I spent 3 weeks in Italy and London with my walking stick and was really pleasantly surprised by the courtesy that was extended to me in tourist places where people assisted every step of the way, and on the trains where I never once stood – not even on the London Tube!
Then I arrived back in DC and was back to the cruel reality of how our system works…….
Very few people ever stood up and most days people would almost knock me over in their effort to get in the train door before me! Replace this man with me from December through February.
I don't think the people their campaign is aimed at are reading the billboards…….
