In this fourth video in our series about getting around in a wheelchair in different metropolitan areas, Aaron explores the public transportation scene in and around Chicago, Illinois. Aaron Baker is a spinal cord injury survivor for over 18 years and he wants to help others get out and explore!

This time, Aaron has a friend with him: Shield HealthCare’s Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist Laura Cox, a native of Chicago. They start their journey at Aaron’s hotel, before attempting to board an L train to Willis Tower. After some initial back-and-forth, they arrive at the tower and plan out their day. Next, they stop at The Art Institute, The Bean (Cloud Gate), and Pritzker Pavilion before grabbing an authentic Chicago Dog. Then onto Buckingham Fountain, the Architecture Boat Tour and Navy Pier, with some deep dish pizza in between.

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