An able-bodied acquaintance of mine has recently had her eyes opened to the poor state of access in public transit. She is interested both in learnnig more and in helping improve things. Since she is specifically interested in how NJ Transit complies with the ADA, I directed her to NJ Citizen Action.
Here is her account of a telephone call with that organization:
In addition, I called NJ Citizen Action and spoke with a manager over there. He said that currently they have filed a law suit involving NJ Transit but he would not go into it with me. I can understand that. He asked me if I were handicapped and I told her that I was not. He told me not to waste his time because he will only speak to those suffering from handicaps. Then he hung up on me.
I’m obviously distressed by this and am interested in comments from anyone familiar with the organization and the NJ Transit situation.
