Transport problems of students at our Unit for Students with Disabilities (USD) are now something of the past.

The USD received two brand-new vehicles from First Car Rental, a vehicle rental company, for the transportation of students with disabilities.

“The vehicles are especially useful to transport students of the unit to and from classes and examinations between the two campuses in Bloemfontein. It also helps us to transport students should they have doctors’ appointments or to perhaps have their physical aids serviced,” says Mrs Martie Marina, senior officer at the Unit for Students with Disabilities.

The two vehicles consist of a passenger vehicle and a minibus. The minibus will later on be converted to meet the specific needs of the students.
