In one of those life-is-unfair predicaments, some disabled Omahans feel left out — stuck in their homes while other handicapped residents can travel freely through the city at low cost, courtesy of a taxpayer-supported van service.
Thanks to the MOBY service, many disabled Omahans can make doctor appointments, go shopping, participate in other activities and generally lead mobile lives across town.
