Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles aren’t as common in New York as they should be, and both public and private transit services continue to fail people with disabilities. The TLC was on its way to increasing access to NYC’s yellow cab fleet, but the app-based driver boom tampered with their approach. The FHV industry must be accessible to all New Yorkers, but new proposals would force working people to front the cost. IDG members joined some of New York’s most prominent Accessibility Advocates to share perspectives and work toward a policy solution for passengers and drivers alike.
