Paraplegic Man Shows How Difficult it is to Hail a Taxi Cab in a Wheelchair

In this video from Vocativ, Brooklyn hip-hop record and music producer Scott Harding shows how hard it is for a person with a disability to hail a taxi in the City.

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.
