With 2015 now well underway, we have kicked off the first of this year’s annual Mobility Expos and Travel Days.
We held Mobility Expos in Rockhampton and Toowoomba last month, with many locals turning out to trial some of the new technologies available to assist them with their travel and daily living.
Our specialist instructors were on hand to demonstrate some of the new technologies on offer, including GPS Travel Aids and UltraCanes, and provide advice about our Guide Dogs.
We also held a Travel Day with Yellow Cabs in Brisbane where we visited their headquarters in Woolloongabba to learn more about the operation of cabs and how they can assist blind and vision impaired people in their travels.
The group also learned about the unique program Yellow Cabs offers its drivers to educate them directly about how “Guide Dogs can go anywhere” a sighted person can go – including the backs of cabs.
Guide Dogs holds a number of Mobility Expos and Travel Days across the state every year. Check out our upcoming events page or call (07) 3500 9060 to find out if there will be one near you.
