In the best of times, living with a disability can make navigating the transportation system difficult. But in these times of social distancing, the mandate on facial coverings and restricted access to everything, travel can be almost a nightmare for some individuals. However, for many people with autism, access to public transportation is essential. Autism advocacy and research group, Autism Speaks, is dedicated to increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism. Through a series of interviews with young adults on the spectrum, they've gathered insight on the transit experiences and very real challenges faced by these individuals.
