Working with local Vancouver companies, Green Power and NGSI, we customized a clean energy all-electric minibus to create a mobile classroom for students with learning differences, the first of its kind in Canada.
Award-winning artist Carson Ting was inspired by LDS Access and created a mural that wraps around the bus and captures the essence of the LDS Mission and Vision.
The innovative design elements of LDS Access ensure COVID-19 protective measures are maintained within each of the mobile classroom’s three physically distanced tutoring stations.
LDS Access will serve families where they are regardless of their ability to pay, breaking down transportation, financial, and social barriers for children with learning differences.
