We see that the region's transportation planning council, NYMTC, calls increasing the number of accessible taxis in New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley a "high" priority.

That's in the draft executive summary of its report on improving transportation for "persons with disabilities, older adults and persons with lower income." (To read the entire report, go to the council's site.)

NYMTC will hear public comments on the plan tomorrow, May 12, from 3-5 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at its office, 199 Water Street, 22nd Street. RSVP (for security reasons) to 212-383-7200. (There are also meetings in White Plains on Wednesday and in Happauge, L.I. on Thursday.)

If anyone can dig in deeper, let's hear from you.
