This contribution refers to a problem that I, and my wife, both encountered when we wanted to make a trip into Pittsburgh.
I call this contribution "Opportunity Lost" because that was unfortunately what happened. My wife and I both looking to go to Pittsburgh for a couple of things: one of which was to see a good friend of ours, but the other, and even more important, was for a business opportunity that could have potentially earned us a great deal of money. Now, we don't live right in Pittsburgh, but we do reside in what is considered the Pittsburgh area. We live in Donegal, we are both totally blind, and there is almost no transportation that cang get us into Pittsburgh save for a cab that would cost almost $100.00 one-way. We live in a town that is just off of the main bus routes, so most forms of public transportation will have nothing to do with coming to pick us up, and this is making it hard for us. We are professional musicians, and I know we could pick up a lot of work in Pittsburgh. On this most recent time when we should have been there, we missed out on a great opportunity simply because we are blind and couldn't get any sort of transportation to get us in. If there could be some form of public transportation that would pick people up that are not on the main bus routes and get them into and out of Pittsburgh, that would be wonderful, and would make it so many more could more easily find gainful employment.
