LETTER: Disabled residents need transit | The Carrboro Citizen: "I am a medically disabled woman, living within the legal boundaries of Chapel Hill. I live alone and cannot afford a car. My sole transportation is provided by Orange County Transportation (OCT), and limited to medical appointments during the week.
I may use the city’s free public transportation, but the closest bus stop to my home is a dangerous 2-mile walk, which prohibits me from riding Chapel Hill’s public buses. I have qualified for EZ Rider, Chapel Hill’s system for the poor and/or disabled, but EZ Rider refuses me their assistance."
