TO RIDE THE PUBLIC'S BUSES: THE FIGHT THAT BUILT THE MOVEMENT is the first in the "Disability Rag Reader" series, anthologies of articles on particular topics that appeared in the Disability Rag 1980-1996. TO RIDE THE PUBLIC'S BUSES, begins in the 1980's and chronicles the fight for equal opportunity rights for people with disabilities. Protests occurring during this time were fought to publicize the segregation and prejudice evident in the American Public Transit Association.

Edited by Mary Johnson and Barrett Shaw, TO RIDE THE PUBLIC'S BUSES details the success of a group of activists fighting for wheelchair accessibility and equality in the eyes of the public.
