Five years after his Matador debut, Toledo has obsessively built (and rebuilt) Car Seat Headrest from a scrappy Bandcamp bedroom project to one of indie rock’s most formidable live acts. On “Can’t Cool Me Down,” the first single from the upcoming album Making a Door Less Open, the guy who once sang about wanting Frank Ocean’s voice hints tantalizingly at how he might move beyond the constraints of open-hearted guitar anthems.

For Making a Door Less Open, the band apparently blended together two versions of the album—one with live instruments, and the other strictly synth-based—while Toledo took on a mysterious alter ego known as “Trait.” That something has changed is immediately clear from “Can’t Cool Me Down,” which is slinky and slightly aloof, where

Transportation Position Statement | The Arc

People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilitiesmust have access to both public and private transportation to lead full, independent lives.

ISSUE

Our constituents lack sufficient access to mass transit, paratransit, trains, ferries, airplanes, their own vehicles, and other modes of transportation to perform everyday activities. Even where accessible public transportation exists, adults with disabilities consider transportation inadequate. In the U.S., 24 million individuals with disabilities use public transit to maintain their independence and participate fully in society.

For many, it is their only transit option. Although federal and state legislation encourages more people with all types of disabilities to go to work, getting to work requires transportation. Inadequate transportation inhibits community involvement. Those living in rural areas often face the greatest challenge of all due to total lack of public transportation and long distances between destinations.

POSITION

Transportation agencies, service providers, and advocacy organizations must ensure that:

  • There is
