Testimonial

The Rickshaw Project is a needed approach to the technical issues of making auto-rickshaws accessible both to drivers and to passengers with disabilities. The project also provides a valuable opportunity to test this approach as a service model which would include a focus on disabled passengers as well as drivers with limited mobility. I wish you every success as you move forward with this project”
