Professor Kudlick Comments on New SF State Bus Fleet

Thursday, January 29, 2015
SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER -- As college life returns to San Francisco State University's main campus, a familiar routine for many students and faculty is back as well: waiting to cram into a shuttle bus for the brief trip to the Daly City BART station. But until this week, when the university introduced a new line of buses, the disability centers on campus offered a fair warning to wheelchair users to avoid the shuttles and instead take Muni. “In the past, more people have advised wheelchair users to use Muni because it’s easier to get on and off the trains or buses,” said Catherine Kudlick, director of the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability. “The other shuttles were so small that you almost felt like the second there was a wheelchair on there, you had to clear out.”
