Even though ADA Paratransit is provided on a local basis, many of the challenges and issues are universal. So, whatever you are experiencing in your city, town, county - you may be surprised at just how similar that is to what is going on elsewhere. Communication: thoughtful and respectful discussion and sharing of ideas is key, and NYS Paratransit Network is just the place to do it. I would encourage readers to check it out and give it a try. There many different ways to share: make a blog posting, start a discussion in the forum, form groups, upload photos/videos, chat. You can remain completely anonymous if you wish (unlike Face Book), or as with any social network, you can create a personal profile. NYSPN is hosted on Ning. In the following CNN interview, co-founder and CEO of Ning, Gina Bianchini tells us how it all works.
