Christopher Schuyler, senior staff attorney, Disability Justice at NYLPI, submitted testimony to New York City Council Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Committee on Oversight and Investigations regarding its September 12 joint hearing on updates and initiatives to improve the NYC Streets Plan.

“From the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) report during today’s hearing, we know that the agency is in danger of missing crucial and legally required benchmarks, particularly with respect to bus stop upgrades and protected bus lanes. DOT must not be permitted to ignore its responsibilities. Not only does it not bode well for the future of the Streets Plan if DOT is already coming up short, but all New Yorkers, including New Yorkers with disabilities, need a safer and more accessible city.”
