Forget about getting around New York City if you're in a wheelchair. Fewer than 80 of more than 13,000 yellow cabs are accessible. (Compare us to London, where every taxi can handle wheelchairs.) What's holding New York up? The taxi industry is resisting accessible cabs - just like the auto industry resisted seat belts, airbags and higher fuel economy. But the City regulates 100% of the taxi industry. So it's time for a mandated, gradual conversion to accessible vehicles for the entire fleet. Otherwise, 99+% of the fleet will remain out of reach for most wheelchair users.
