Transportation to SBVI Programs and Services
Direct Assistance from Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The Society will provide the Society’s driver or use for round-trip transportation to appointments at the Society’s offices, including appointments for the Drews Low Vision Clinic, Support Groups, Technology Training, Braille instruction and selected Leisure Activity Groups.
There is a request for a $10 round-trip donation to help offset some expenses incurred by the Society in providing this service. This one-time donation would cover the all sessions of the Support Group.
Community Transportation Services
There are a variety of other resources to help individuals get to other appointments, shopping or places of interest or need other than to the Society. These include:
The Society is located on the south east corner of the intersection of Brentwood Boulevard and Manchester Road. The Society’s building is served by the Manchester Road (east-west) and Brentwood Boulevard (north – south) bus lines.
For those enrolled in Metro’s Call-A-Ride program for the disabled curb-to-curb transportation is available through Metro’s Call-A-Ride reservation system.
