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

Aaron plans his trip to Austin around the Austin Film Festival, where the documentary about him, Coming to My Senses, had its world premiere. Aaron spends his time in the city using buses and light rail to visit the LBJ Presidential Library, the Texas Capitol Building, the Texas State History Museum and more.

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

    Come to Ohio, Akron to be specific. We need some exposure on the subject of accessibility.
