Plaintiffs Win NYC Taxicab Suit
See this story, which begins:
A federal judge has barred New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission from issuing permits for taxicabs unless they're accessible to people with disabilities.
Federal Judge George Daniels issued his written ruling late Friday. He says the commission can only provide taxi medallions for wheelchair-accessible vehicles until it produces a comprehensive plan to provide meaningful access to taxicab service for disabled passengers. He says such a plan must include targeted goals and standards and anticipated measurable results.
