Woody galvanized TRIPIL and the State of Pennsylvania's disability rights movement during the 1990's to start the push for the right of disabled people under aged 60 in rural Pennsylvania to have access to rural public transportation. Our victory is now known as the (under 60) Shared Ride Program. Pennsylvania advocates who pushed the issue until the task was completed. Come help us celebrate Woody's legacy and visit.
