Judge Declares NYC Taxis MUST Be Equipped To Help Handicapped

| Filed under: Legal Matters

Taxi ruling

Such wonderful news! It's just a shame it took this long.

A judge declared on Friday that New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission could not issue permits for taxicabs unless they're accessible to people using wheelchairs, writing:

"Meaningful access for the disabled to public transportation services is not a utopian goal or political promise, it is a basic civil right."

The ruling is the result of a lawsuit against the taxi commission for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act since less than 2% of cabs are wheelchair accessible.

Disability Rights Advocates, a non-profit, called this "the best Christmas gift our clients could ask for" and we couldn't agree more!

EQUALITY FOR ALL!
