Accessibility and transitions

There is an accessibility consideration that I have been thinking about for quite some time which isn’t covered under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is the accessibility of transition. It was a thought that started around the same time as when the new subways started to show up in Toronto, and the height and width became a new barrier for some people who rely on transit to get to and from work.

Land on free parking, expect to pay

In Monopoly, landing on free parking is simply a safe place to land. Many people, however, play under rules which allow anyone landing on free parking to collect the “pot” in the middle of the board. Ca-ching! Free parking at the workplace, however, is rarely a windfall, nor ever really free, yet the cost and value of parking is usually underestimated or overlooked by both employers and employees.
