Lorrie Ryals started this petition to Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County Texas and

I am writing this petition to expand Metro lift to all Harris county texas.

I have applied to Metro lift for my disabled son. He is 25 and requires door to door service and is not a stranger to this service. SInce moving into Cypress Texas we have had a lot of hurdles to overcome. He is going to a Adult Day program and loves it but will be in danger of not attending due to transportation. 

We chose to live in Cypress Texas for our family and love it. Being outside a 4 mile radius of the current service area cuts off any non driver or elderly with a disability. This seems unjust for all of the rest of the disabled population in our Area.

The Metro Lift asked me to take him into a 4 mile location and drop him at a convenience store or nearby restaurant each trip. Even if it is from 6 am to 7 am then again at 3 to 5 pm. The Radius needs to be expanded. 

Everyone in this area is paying taxes toward this service but unable to use it..I know I am not the only person who has a family member or friend who qualifies for this safe reliable transportation.

He is not eligible to go to Day program, the grocery store, to pay a bill, go shopping. He is just going to need to get those 5 miles of where he has no idea where he is at because we live outside the loop. 

There isn't any transportation in this part of the county just inside the loop

This is all of Harris County we are all paying Harris county Taxes as well. 

This hardly seems ADA compliant to me who agrees?

Please support this petition so all of Harris county can receive this service.
