Other than the handicapped parking spot what do we make a point of leaving it to handicapped?

Braille and large print sections in the library.

Handicapped bathroom stalls, theoretically, although people tend to use them.

In some apartment buildings the elevator is only accessible to people with a key, and keys are given out to handicapped residents.

Special education classes.

@RedDeerGuy1 I mean things non-handicapped can and do use. Large print documents yes.

I once stayed in a handicapped hotel room! The bathroom was awesome! You could have a shaving cream (or whipped cream) fight in there and then hose the walls and floor down so you don’t leave a mess.

@flo I was in special education for one day in grade 5 because I was disturbing the class. I asked the teacher to teach me calculus. She said no. I walked to my old class and went to my old desk and behaved for a week. Non disabled can use the special education class. Unfortunately they couldn’t accommodate gifted students. I did spend five minutes spinning in circles with the other classmates while waiting for the teacher to arrive. Now that I think of it it would be fun to stay in the special education class and act like a kindergarten student. If I ever relive that part of my life I would stay in the special education class for the whole year. I might just get sliced apples and juice boxes and chocolate milk.

Front seats on city busses.
A rear space on Greyhound busses for wheelchairs.
Front of a line, sometimes.
Lower seating on Amtrak.

The city buses here have side-facing seats in the front that are easier for the disabled, elderly, and those pushing strollers. People are good about vacating when they see a potential user getting on. The seats also fold up to clear floor space for wheelchairs and strollers. And there are “seat belts” to keep a wheelchair stationary.

The buses also have mechanical ramps that unfold like a tongue for roll-on/roll-off access.

Most of the L train stations got elevators in the past 15 years. But some don’t.

Come to think of it, I don’t often see wheelchairs on the trains. Maybe because all the buses are so well equipped.

Many movie theaters have chairs specifically for disabled viewers, though they are often taken by the able bodied.
