Wheelchair Accessible Yellow Taxis and Limousines In New York
The Taxi & Limousine Commission Board has decided to add a 30-cent surcharge on all metered yellow and green cab fares starting next January. The money will be immediately put in a fund to help yellow cab owners make their vehicles wheelchair-accessible. The unanimous vote made quite an emotional response from the wheelchair-using New Yorkers. They share their intimate and even heart breaking testimonials on their personal difficulties when traveling around the city:
“I dream of a world where it’s 100% accessible and we have cabs just like anyone else,” said Jason DaSilva, a Brooklyn filmmaker who suffers from multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair.
