Joanne Wacha: Buses and Taxis
Here Joanne talks about her journey to school.
TranscriptI had to get picked up on the same bus – green bus that I got picked up when I went to speech therapy school, so the council buses with other disabled kids. Oh at first I was taken in a taxi which was great, black taxi, cabby always knew what time to get me when I’d be ready, and we’d just go through the back of the school because the school wasn’t accessible from the front, dropped me off, I’d wheel myself to my class.
