jesse_the_k: sign reads "torture chamber unsuitable for wheelchair users" (even more access fail)

What sort of things might your partner find interesting? I know Madison well and there are definitely things worth visiting here.

As far as buses, thanks to the law and funding policies all U.S. city buses have the equipment to board and secure scooters and wheelchairs. One can't predict whether the drivers will welcome us or be jerks. Many of the light rail/subway systems were specifically exempted from access. Over-the-road buses (the tall ones which travel between cities, like Greyhound) require 24 hours notice to ensure an accessible coach in the right place.

The frustrating thing about Chicago is the curb ramps are very uneven — some are so steep and sloped that I've travelled in the street to use a driveway. (Not to mention the driveways which appear in the middle of the sidewalk without warning.)

I scraped through many doorways in Boston's Isabella Gardner museum.
