If you’re in a wheelchair, getting around New York City is no easy feat. Less than 20 percent of subway stations have elevators, and only 2 percent of the 13,000 yellow taxis are accessible. Most disabled New Yorkers are relegated to taking Access-A-Ride, which can be slow and unreliable.
For a City that is known for its forward thinking, this treatment is completely unacceptable.
