Blue Bird Thanks

Blue Bird Group, the leading taxi company in Indonesia, supported the third Regional Dialogue with complimentary transfer from and to the airport for many of the participants and speakers arriving from abroad.

Blue Bird also provided AGENDA with its Life Care taxis, five MPV 7 seaters with a power slide up seat that can be electrically moved down closer to a customer with special needs, especially wheelchair-users, pregnant women and elderly gusts. All wheelchair-users coming to the conference from abroad used the Life Care taxis. We want to highlight some of the comments related to the Blue Bird Life Care taxis and thank Indonesia’s leading taxi company for their great support to AGENDA:

Mr. Nay Lin Soe from Myanmar MILI (Myanmar Independent Living Initiative)

“It’s my first experience for me, so accessible for a wheelchair-user and particularly convenient for a person with mobility difficulty. The service makes a person with disabilities easy . Persons with Disabilities aren’t needed to be carried around to preserve the dignity of with disabilities. I took a video of my experience and plan to make advocacy to others in my country. I really appreciate for your great initiative and innovative”

Nguyen Hong Ha, Director Hanoi Independent Living Center Vietnam

 “It was really amazing when I first tried the accessible Blue Bird taxi for people with disabilities. I was impressed by the way the seat was modified. You do not need to install a lift or a ramp, which might be costly. It was creative I had a nice experience this time.”

Mr. Ashraf Eid Ibrahim Abdel Rahman Marei from Egypt, National Advocacy Service for people with disabilities

“I have been very impressed by this modern taxi, I hope more countries will introduce these cars in the near future, including Egypt”.
