Calgary Transit Forum November 15, 2017

11/15/2017 5:30 PM

CNIB Calgary office at 10 11A Street NE.

Whether it’s traveling to and from school, work or throughout your community, people with sight loss have many transportation options. From private cars to taxi cabs to public transit and more, being able to independently get around Calgary can make a huge difference to someone’s quality of life. Much has changed in recent years, from mobile aps that provide access to bus schedules, to the introduction of UBER, to audible next stop announcements. We are interested in learning about your experiences on Calgary Transit, and are extending an invitation to join us for a focus group. Our goal is to capture the lived experience of Calgarians with sight loss as they utilize public transit. At this time, we will only be looking at fixed route buses and the LRT, not Access Calgary. If you take the bus or ride the LRT, please consider joining us on Wednesday, November 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the CNIB Calgary office at 10 11A Street NE. Please RSVP to Lui Greco by Friday November 10 at (403) 261-7234 or lui.greco@cnib.ca Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. If you require any disability related accommodations, please be sure to indicate this when you RSVP.

The Knit and Knatter, a group of knitters, meet every week at the CNIB Kitchener Centre to socialize and make creations out of yarn.  Beginner knitters learn with the help of CNIB volunteers and long-time knitters – some of whom have rediscovered their love of knitting after losing their sight.   The group lead has a guide dog so if you have dog allergies and wish to participate, please prepare yourself accordingly.
