Travelers with disabilities have more resources on which to rely than ever before, making it easier than ever get where you want to go. We want to mention the most prominent of the thousands available in the following comprehensive list. Print and save this for future reference.

The U.S. National Park Service offers a Golden Access Passport that gives free lifetime entrance to U.S. national parks for persons who are blind or permanently disabled, regardless of age. You may pick up a Golden Access Passport at any NPS entrance fee area by showing proof of medically determined disability and eligibility for receiving benefits under federal law. Besides free entry, the Golden Access Passport also offers a 50% discount on federal-use fees charged for such facilities as camping, swimming, parking, boat launching, and tours. For more information, click onto www.nps.gov/fees_passes.htm or call tel. 888-GO-PARKS (467-2757).
