Rolling With The "Rona"- Getting Around The City As A Disabled Woman

Having access to reliable transportation is essential to daily living in the big city. Unfortunately during times as these people like myself, the disabled, often face certain challenges in being to maneuver around comfortably, safely and with ease. Since the explosion of the Corona virus here in NYC, we have heard talk about a decline in ridership of public transport and the drop in revenue, but what about how it is affecting the lives of some of the very people that depend on this service.

I ride the B 47 bus at least 2x a week. Each time I am forced to board the rear of the bus.  I rely on a Rollator to assist me with walking and makes it difficult to get up/down off the bus. I would think theM MTAwould have instructed its Bus drivers to show better customer care towards it's most vulnerable passengers.

We are all being affected by this pandemic. Living in a time of uncertainty. But it doesn't mean their has to be a breakdown in basic human decency. Let us all pleaseremember to be kind. It don't cost a thing.

Waste Free Environment NYC

Attention My Fellow NY Residents,

Did You Know? About a 1/3 of New Yorkers Citys' waste can be recycled through the curbside recycling program; another third can be recovered through the City’s organics programs; and another 10% (textiles, electronic waste, harmful household products, and plastic bags) can be moved through donations and take-back programs!

Take the  DSNY’s Zero Waste Pledge! 

What is the Zero Waste Pledge?

The Zero Waste pledge  helps to reduce, reuse and recycle! You will be committing to living a greener lifestyle that could mean donating the clothes, separating out your food scraps for compost or recycling your old laptop.

Please instead of sending trash to a far-away landfill, take the pledge to create a more sustainable city for future generations to come.

Special thanks to the NYC Department of Sanitation. Such a cute reusable bag. Made of 90% recycled material makes it even better. If you are a NYC resident, sign up today! Peace.
