I am writing on behalf of a friend with disabilities here: His opinion follows here:
Van services are beholden to area jurisdictions. Once, he was asked to participate in an audition for a job; he lives in one county, but the job was in the next county. To be able to use the van services, he would have had to pay an out-of-pocket fee that was prohibitively expensive. Is it possible to have county council members and/or administrators coordinate with each other so that van services can honor each others' regions without penalty to those who rely on the services.
