New San Francisco Access Guide Published


access san francisco

Berkeley, CA July 23, 2007 --San Francisco's newest access guide, Access San Francisco is now available from the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau (SFCVB). Compiled by Access Northern California (ANC), this free resource includes access details on over 100 San Francisco-area attractions, restaurants and hotels; plus information on accessible transportation, local disability organizations, wheelchair rentals and medical supply dealers.

All properties in Access San Francisco were personally inspected by Access Northern California
, a one-stop accessible travel information and consultation service for travelers with disabilities and the hospitality industry.

Says ANC founder, Bonnie Lewkowicz, "Accurate access information is hard to find, so I'm very proud of the fact that ANC visited every property included in this access guide. Seeing is believing as far as access is concerned."

Now in its fourth edition, Access San Francisco was made possible with help from the SFCVB, the San Francisco Mayor's Office on Disability and the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation.

Says Lewkowicz, "Access San Francisco is easy to use, yet it contains all the access information travelers need. For example, we included the hotel and restaurant information in tables, but we also listed the access features that could not be depicted by icons in the notes section."

Access San Francisco is available free from the SFCVB at (415) 391-2000 or (415) 392-0328 TTY. Large print and audio versions of the guide will be available in August from the Mayor's Office on Disability at (510) 554-6789 or (415) 554-6799 TTY. Updated access information about San Francisco can be found on the ANC website at
