Video: How Drivers Can Deal with Physical Issues

Great set a reminders related to improving your comfort while driving.

Leg cramps, back pain, and muscle spasms can strike at any time, including when a driver is behind the wheel. When it happens on the road, certain physical issues can be downright dangerous.

This is such a pretty song. Bob Lind actually is a great writer/poet with many great songs. But this was his biggest hit from 1966

Navigating Roundabouts

Roundabouts reduce collisions because vehicle must slow down, but they can be tricky to navigate. Here's how to do it.

SSA Service Update - 6/12/18 at 9:55 a.m.
During the offloading of the M/V Governor's 7:15 a.m. arrival in Woods Hole, a disembarking truck damaged the counter weight cables to the Slip 2 transfer bridge. As a result the M/V Governor's 7:30 a.m. departure was approximately 45 minutes late.

Repairs for the counter weight cables in Slip 2 are expected to be completed today by noon. Until the repairs are done, ferries docking in Woods Hole will be able to use only one slip, which will result in the arrivals and departures to and from Woods Hole being delayed from their published schedule. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Long History of Caring Makes Vineyard a Disability Paradise

Great recognition and praise for all TCI/VTA employees!!!! Special thanks to our Lift (para-transit) team!

“From a mainlander’s perspective, Martha’s Vineyard is disability paradise,” Ms. Maher said. “Your buses are on time. You have a transportation system that reaches all parts of the Island.” And, she added, the bus drivers here are more courteous and helpful to people with disabilities."

The Vineyard Independence Partnership brings together Islanders with disabilities, family members and friends for activities on the Island.

Negotiate fairly!
TCI can improve by settling the contract with the Bus Drovers! Stop using out of state replacement drivers, we don’t like your Union busting tactics!
Great shot. I had a field day back in September
