Accessible Transportion Supporters:

The battle continues!

To update you, ADAPT has delivered to all House Transportation Committee 
members and all Senate members of the Conference Committee a 5 min. 
video of   folks getting carried on, etc. and showing how lousey that 
is, a letter from ADAPT urging they support no ammendments or exeptions 
for Greyhound AND the Doggone Shame report that shows the results of our 
test rides.

Due to the disabiity community's work NO amendments got put on the House
bill in regard to Over-The-Road Buses (Greyhound).  The bill now goes to
a conference committee where they STILL can put on language that would
GUT the DoT regulations about accessibility to Greyhound.  This
conference committee will happen when Congress returns in late April.

We have the names of SOME of the conference committee members in the
Senate.  If there is someone from your state contact them immediately and
tell them NO amendments about access to Over-The-Road Buses.  (Names of
House Members will follow)
Let's first concentrate on the Senate members.
