Dear Editor,

My girlfriend and I are going to Portugal, but I don’t know where to begin seeking wheelchair accessible transportation and such. Can you help me? Please, forward any information that might help me find my way. I promise a very cool picture upon my return. Thanks, thanks, thanks. Freddie Farach

In Lisbon there are ramped cabs (similar to London Taxis) for rental (day/week) with driver. Call (01) 828 070, 815 2016, 793 2756. Some trains have wheelchair seating as well. Wheeling Around Algrave (089) 399844/5 is a Portugese agency that might be able to help further.
