Get a Wheelchair-Accessible Van for CU Boulder

CU NightRide is a service that allows students at the University of Colorado to get free rides to, from, and around campus after sundown. It is vital for student safety, but unfortunately, it is not currently possible to use in conjunction with a wheelchair. The office of Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance is requesting a wheelchair-accessible van to be used for NightRide and extracurricular activities. One reason this van would be so important is that the Buff Buses are not always operating according to ADA code. As students, we see this van as a necessity for all our classmates to have safe transportation at night.
We call for the University of Colorado at Boulder to invest in a wheelchair-accessible van to be used for the NightRide program, as well as training for drivers to use the accessibility equipment on the van.
