City & State: Ride-hailing companies getting better on accessibilityAugust 18, 2021
City & State reported on the strides the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission have made so far, incoming metrics that will evaluate these companies by stricter guidelines, and the efforts that need to be made to ensure riders with disabilities have the same experience as fellow New Yorkers.
Justin Wood, NYLPI’s Director of Policy, commented:
“I think the basic problem is that there’s still no reliable, affordable service for people who need an accessible vehicle for any reason…. We’re for the city making other policy interventions to increase the supply of accessible vehicles, and make sure they’re more affordable.”
