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

In this video from Shield HealthCare’s Spinal Cord Injury Lifestyle Specialist, watch Aaron explore Houston, Texas. Aaron arrived at the Hobby Airport and takes a bus to downtown – an experience he does not recommend. But upon exploring the Texas Medical Center area and the Houston Zoo, he finds the city both accessible and charming. Aaron’s heart, however, belongs to the NASA Space Center, and he’s “fired up” about seeing Saturn V. Join Aaron as he uses public transportation to discover Houston.

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