> Hello fellow Federationists!,
>    I wanted to take some time and share with you some wonderful
> news! Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of having the contract
> manager Virginia Werly, of our cities para transit and bus services t
> speak at our monthly chapter meeting.  During that meeting I had
> expressed some serious concerns about one of the citys' bus malls .
> My concerns were that the buses do not have individual berths for them
> to stop.  Buses stop at random places and at times, will go around
> other buses that are stopped to pick up people, and cause not only
> blind people but handicapped people as well to miss that bus.  Ms.
> Werly promised that she would be in contact with me to address these
> issues, and she followed through with her promise!  After visits to
> the area of concern and negotiations with the owners of the adjoining
> land, we have been heard!  In January 2012, the bus mall at the Tyler
> Galleria in Riverside California will be expanded!  The new area will
> include individual berths for each bus to stop.  Each stop will be
> covered as well.  I am continuing to work with Ms. Werly to see if we
> can add braille to the signage.
> This is another fine example of what we can do when we are passionate
> and work together for a common cause for the good of all people!
> N.F.B. rocks.
