All day today I'll be taking the #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge ... "spend a day avoiding anywhere that is not accessible" and detail the day on Twitter as I go. So today some tweets will not be transit related.
My current home is only suitable for a person who can climb stairs. Like thousands living in a townhouse, I would have to move if mobility changed. A stair lift is not an option. No ground floor bathing or possible bedroom. #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge
When my elderly friends visit the steps m are an issue, the condo does not have stair rails at front or rear doors. I'm in process of asking for permission to add them. Not clear if this will be easy or a hassle to get boards approval. #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge Picture of my front door with it's two steps and no railings.

My StopGapOttawa challenge starts by leaving my inaccessible home, and hopping into an inaccessible cab. Not an auspicious start :/ #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge
(Should have said: StopGapOttawa has challenged local politicians to note and measure accessibility barriers today, abs I’m be route to work at the Ontario Legislature. More to come)
The Ottawa Airport has an accessible entrance and elevator to departure floor. That’s good. #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge

All day today I'll be taking the #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge ... "spend a day avoiding anywhere that is not accessible" and detail the day on Twitter as I go. A chance to open some eyes towards barriers that exist, and how to fix them.
I'm leaving in just under 30 minutes from #Stittsville to City Hall via bus & train. First barrier will be the front steps of my house. Like most homes, accessibility is definitely not a default.
A small obstacle in the sidewalk to the bus stop. It's garbage day in #Stittsville

Taking the #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge today. I’ll be posting throughout the day. I get to leave & enter my house that is filled with stairs but once out the door the challenge is on. @StopgapOttawa #accessibility
Ok. I’m off. Worked from home for a bit now heading out to take LRT into City Hall. Last inaccessible steps I’ll take today!
Would usually cross here to make the intersection crossing faster but the ped button is behind those bushes!!
