Access-A-Ride Reform Group (AAARG!) Releases Access-A-Ride E-Hail Fact Sheet

September 5, 2023

Access-A-Ride, Access-a-Ride Reform Group, MTA

Eman Rimawi, a Black, Native American and Palestinian woman using a wheelchair, wears a tshirt with the Access-a-Ride Reform Group logo and holds up a sign that reads "Don't Kill Us." She is wearing a mask as other masked protestors gather nearby.

In 2017, the MTA started an innovative pilot that allows Access-A-Ride (AAR) riders to get a ride with the kind of freedom that other transit riders take for granted in New York City. For the first time, AAR riders could get where they needed to go, when they needed to be there. But the MTA now has imposed severe restrictions that render the program much more costly and much less useful.

This fact sheet shows the clear disparities between the widely lauded first phase and the MTA’s flawed new proposal.
