Ruth Lowenkron Submitted Testimony to NYC Council Committees Regarding Access-A-Ride OversightFebruary 24, 2023
Access-A-Ride, Access-a-Ride Reform Group, Disability Justice, Health Justice, News, Transportation
“NYLPI urges the Council to exercise robust oversight over the MTA and advocate for a fully accessible mass transportation system. Lack of accessible transportation is the number two cause of the abysmal statistics of unemployment and underemployment of people with disabilities. This is not only a matter of access and equal rights, but also a matter of ensuring that people with disabilities can be self-sufficient and need not rely on government benefits.”
