Statement of Edith Prentiss, Taxis For All Campaign, on Mayor Bloomberg's comments about Justice Department support for wheelchair-accessible taxis

October 14, 2011

"Mayor Bloomberg has got to be kidding if he believes the City can discriminate against wheelchair users because taxi drivers 'can't have a good dialogue' with them. There's no excuse for the mayor's ill-informed and outrageous attempt to defend years of unjustified resistance to wheelchair-accessible taxis by his administration.

When the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District -- whose Chambers Street office is a block from City Hall -- calls on a federal judge to rule in favor of wheelchair users, the mayor should wake up and listen.

As former TLC chairs Diane McGrath-McKechnie and Christopher Lynn wrote recently to the mayor, it's time to reverse the 'shameful lack of progress' and make all taxi and car services wheelchair accessible."
