DisabilityScoop on Accessible Transportation Hearing
The story is here. It begins:
More than two decades after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, one of the chief architects of the legislation is looking to eliminate transportation hurdles that people with disabilities continue to face.
At a U.S. Senate hearing Thursday, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, lamented the lack of accessible taxis even in the nation’s biggest cities and sympathized with Americans with disabilities who struggle daily to get from point A to point B.
“Unfortunately,… more than 21 years since the passage of the ADA, we have not yet achieved equality in access to transportation,” Harkin said.
