Hello Anita:
Welcome back.  Yes, Amtrack is very accessible.  Especially from Oakland.
The station is always manned orshall I say personed.  Everyone has to go up
to the counter to purchase a ticket so you can ask for any assistance that
you need at that time.  

Btw, our state convention is coming up in October.  There will probably be a
bus coming from northern California.  Here is the link to the
pre-registration form if you would like to join us.  There are others coming
from the Bay area.

We now have an At Large Chapter which meets this Thursday by conference
call.  Please join us and introduce yourself.  The number is 712-432-0175
and the access code is 184220 pound.
Hope to talk to you soon.

Here is the link for registration.

The National Federation of the blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future.  Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. 
You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Thank you,

Good morning!

I have joined this list believing that by doing so I can finally get myself
on track.

Earlier this year I moved to Oakland and I spend my time between two of my
sister's homes, one of which lives in Stockton. I have been on this list
before so there may be some who recognize my name.

Over the years I have travelled to California attending school in San
Francisco some 20 years ago.  Unless there is a life-altering event that
forces me to move to another state, I do not believe I will be moving again.

So I am reaching out to those of you that have dealt with life in the
transportation system and how accommodating the various services are for
blind customers.  I am curious to know if anyone can (or is willing) to
share their challenges with Amtrak.

I would like very much to join a church in Stockton but I currently reside
in Oakland. Is Zamtrak accessible for blind persons that utilizes this

If I haven't caused everyon on the list to hit your delete button I'd
appreciate some input concerning this.

Thank you.
