Join us in a friendly conversation about technology as it relates to people who are blind or low vision. This is not a formal group with officers, by-laws or any of that stuff that prevents people from just talking with people.

Several people do arrive early to get a start on breakfast, however eating breakfast is not required to attend our meeting.

So bring yourself, bring a friend and bring your questions.
If you need help getting to the Club Room, just stop at Customer Service and they will assist you.

Get Notified About Kansas City Share-A-Fare Status Changes

This was posted to the NUT KC list on 12-29-2015.

I posted this on Face Book this morning and wanted to share it here.

Steve Clark feeling frustrated with Ruthie Rayne Clark.

It was great to receive a phone call and a text message this morning about the status change for the paratransit system in Kansas City, share-a-fare.
I don’t understand why so many people who are blind in KC are so resistant in receiving this helpful information. I’ve been telling people about this great free service for 10 months now and Ruthie and I are the only ones who are using it.

Everyone thinks its a great idea when I tell people but nobody wants to sign up for this free service. I can only assume some would rather be dependent on others or maybe they just don’t care what is going on with their ride.

Here is the link to receive a phone call:

Here is the link to receive a text message on your smart phone. Due to the limitation in the size of text messages, there isn’t as much detail as you would get with the phone call, but enough to know what is going on.
