For most of us, public transportation does a great job of getting us to school or work.

But the snowbank we have to clamber over at the bus stop, for example,  is more than a nuisance for someone with disabilities: it might mean a missed doctor's appointment,  being late to pick up a child or even another day spent housebound.

We wrap up our series from the 2016 Local Solutions to Poverty Candidate Forum with the comments of Jemel Jones, a community activist looking for some changes in public transportation to better accommodate people with disabilities.
