In 1999, Aaron Baker was in an accident that left him with a spinal cord injury. In this second video in our series about getting around in a wheelchair in different metropolitan areas, Aaron explores the public transportation scene using a wheelchair in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

Aaron begins at the San Jose airport before boarding a shuttle to the nearest Caltrain station. From there he gets on a north-bound train to the end of the line: San Francisco! Aaron takes historic streetcars, buses and the BART to get around, stopping at the Ferry Terminal, the Wharf and grabs a view of the Golden Gate Bridge before heading to Berkeley. In the East Bay, Aaron visits the Center for Independent Living. Want to know more? Watch!

This video focuses on Aaron using a wheelchair in San Francisco, but we want to know: where should he head to next? Let us know in the comments!
