In 1999, Aaron Baker was in an accident that left him with a spinal cord injury. In this third video in our series about getting around in a wheelchair in different metropolitan areas, Aaron explores the public transportation scene using a wheelchair in Seattle, Washington.

Aaron’s trip starts at the Sea-Tac Airport, south of downtown. He boards a Link Light Rail directly from the airport and heads to Pioneer Square. From there he checks out Pike Place Market and adds to the gum wall. Then (after some steep hills) he boards the South Lake Union Streetcar to check out the quieter side of Seattle, before rolling onto the monorail for a trip to the Space Needle. Aaron’s last public transportation for the day is the ferry to Bainbridge Island. There’s much more packed into the day, so be sure to watch!

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