Disabled World has shared news of the ruling in favor of the plaintiffs in Britt v. MTA, which addresses unfair exclusions to public transit fare discounts that are available for traditional MTA service, but not for Access-a-Ride paratransit users.

“Access-A-Ride users, most of whom are of limited means, rely on Access-A-Ride to travel to their jobs, schools, and medical appointments, and to visit with friends and family,” says Christopher Schuyler, managing attorney with the Disability Justice Program at NYLPI. “Extending these discounts – the very same discounts available to subway and bus riders – to Access-A-Ride will mean a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities who use Access-A-Ride.”
