I'm looking to apply for transport services. My only concern is not being taken seriously as a young adult with a hidden disability who looks perfectly healthy on the outside. Not to mention I just lost my full time job, and money is tight right now so I can't really afford something fancy. Buses and trains are confusing and scary for me. Have any of you applied for something like this? How did it go?

      people will always be prejudiced against those with invisible disabilities and it sucks but it's reality. i would say to try your best to fight for it and get medical papers stating your diagnosis. i can't help on the transportation part, i just wish you all the best. i know you'll be able to get the hang of it soon. don't be too afraid to ask for help when it comes to "is this the right stop" and whatnot. take care!!

One user shared their experience with a city's "access ride" service, which is designed for people with disabilities who cannot use regular public transit. They mentioned that it is much cheaper than Uber/Lyft and only requires a few dollars per trip. To apply, they had to get their doctor to send a form explaining their disability and then do a quick phone interview. It might be worth looking into similar services in your area to see if you qualify.
