The Problem

*

Managing a shuttle system for children with disabilities is particularly challenging, with each passenger having his or her own special needs.

Krambo's wings have thousands of trainees on the move, each with their own special needs.

Meet Anna,

Ana has epilepsy, and a long drive in a vehicle without air conditioning might cause her an Epileptic seizure.

 

On one of the trips to the branch, the air conditioner broke. No one anticipated that this situation would be dangerous for Anna.
She was rushed to the hospital in a serious condition.

Meet Dana, Roy’s mother.

Roy is a child with visual impairments.

Dana is worried every time Roy boards the shuttle.

 

She does not know if the ride is going smoothly, if Roy got off the shuttle in the right place, and if he is safe and happy.

Meet David,

He's in a wheelchair.

It takes him 15 minutes to leave the house to go for a car ride.

 

When his ride is late, he is stuck waiting outside in the rain or the heat.
