I want to move to Cape Cod MA, but I'm daunted by the number of hurtles I have to get past to get there.|
I hoping someone came give me more information on Cape Cod and help me figure out how to deal with the hurtles.
While I can walk very, very short distances, I use a scooter to get around. Right know I live in a rural area and am virtually home bound. There is no handicapped transportation here. The local church provides me rides to my various doctors. I have few relatives, and get a very little bit of help (a drive to a family party once a year) from one or the other of the two nephews I have in the area.
So, I want to move to Cape Cod. I'm hoping I will be able to be more independent there, and get out of the house more. Also, I long to live near the ocean again. I know little about Cape Cod except what I've read on the internet. I think there is more transportation available there, but I'm not sure ( I get confused easily).
I've seen buses listed for Cape Cod, but I don't know if they allow scooters on them. I know they allow wheelchairs. Also, I'm interested in the bike trails. They say they allow electric wheelchairs, but, despite sending them an e-mail, I don't know if they allow scooters.
About the buses, I don't even know how one gets on a bus with a scooter. I know they have lifts, but how does one use them?
Also, I think I would need to spend maybe a week on the Cape just looking around, but how does one look around a new place when one can't drive. ( I would be doing this alone.)
I tried finding some place on the Cape that might have services for the disabled, hoping they could help me with some of this, but I came up blank.
Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
