Why are accessible taxis important?
Because wheelchair users want to join family and friends at all the places that AMERICA has to offer.
Because the wheelchair-using public should have the same opportunity to get from place to place as the walking public.
Because as the population ages, the number of wheelchair users will increase. Because everyone needs to participate in the economy!
Because para-transit systems are overloaded & unable to meet the demand and cannot provide ALL of the city's transportation services!
Judge George Daniels explained that "meaningful access for the disabled to public transportation services is not a utopian goal or political promise; it is a basic civil right."
