NYLPI Access-A-Ride Campaign Coordinator and Organizer Eman Rimawi co-led the Riders Alliance press conference on June 7 along with several disability rights advocates, Congressman Jamaal Bowman, and MTA accessibility officials on how to make subways accessible for people with disabilities. “As New York City recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic engine that is the subway system must be fully accessible to all passengers, including people with disabilities, the elderly, and those who push strollers and delivery cars,” Rimawi said. She asked MTA Chief Accessibility Officer Quemuel Arroyo questions about why Access-A-Ride users aren’t getting discounts, especially with the OMNY system in place (highlighted in this Explica article).
