In this eighth video in our series about getting around in a wheelchair in different metropolitan areas, you’ll find Aaron using a wheelchair in Dallas, Texas. and explores the public transportation scene. Aaron Baker is a spinal cord injury survivor for over 19 years and he wants to help others get out and explore! Aaron’s hope is that by making these videos, other individuals with mobility issues will see how easy or difficult the different cities he visits may be for them.

In this video from Shield HealthCare’s Spinal Cord Injury Lifestyle Specialist, watch Aaron explore Dallas, Texas. To get to Dallas, Aaron rented a car in Houston with added hand-controls. On his way, he drops by an old friend’s house and finds some other vehicles to drive. The following morning, he takes the TRE train into downtown Dallas. Once there, he checks out the Perot Museum and drops by the Sixth Floor Museum. Then it’s time to take the light rail to some lunch! Aaron also experiences a Mobility in the City first with a small accident, before heading to the AT&T stadium for some Motocross.

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