I'm disabled. How can I ride the streetcar?
Very easily. The streetcar has saucer-sized buttons along its exterior and interior walls. If you are in a wheelchair or motorized scooter, or pushing a stroller or pulling a grocery cart, you simply push the button when the streetcar stops, and a level ramp extends to the curb for level access. If you are blind, the streetcar operator can signal for the ramp to ease your access to or from the streetcar. Many disabled Portlanders choose to live along the light rail and streetcar lines because the vehicles are barrier-free, which enables them to lead more independent lives.
