A diagnosis of MS shouldn't keep you from participating in activities you enjoy, or even traveling. The key is research and planning. And know your options in terms “mobility” and “accessibility” to get where you want to go and do what you want to do — comfortably, safely, and with a limited drain on your energy.

Recreation

When you're ready to hit the road — or the high seas — get in the know first. Some thoughts:

Travel

Our travel resources publication (.pdf) and the links below an help you started planning your next trip or activity:

Share your air travel experiences

2016 is the 30th anniversary of the Air Carrier Access Act, a federal law that prohibits commercial airlines from discriminating against passengers with disabilities, and requires certain accommodations. The Society — along with other advocacy organizations — is pursuing ways to improve the air travel experience for people with disabilities.
Share your air travel experiences at airaccess30.org.

Air travel regulations are subject to change. Visit tsa.gov/accessibility for updates.

Accessibility regulations

The 2010 amended American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations include new or expanded provisions for nondiscrimination policies. They cover:
  • the use of wheelchair and other power-driven mobility devices
  • the use of service animals
  • reserving and guaranteeing accessible hotel rooms
  • selling tickets for wheelchair accessible seating at sporting events and performance venues
  • guidelines on how the new regulations affect existing facilities
Read more about the ADA and people with MS (.pdf).
