About This Issue

The Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) and the Taxis for All Campaign reached a settlement on a class action lawsuit stating that the TLC was in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to have adequate service for those living with a disability. The settlement calls for the TLC to mandate that half of all retired taxis be replaced with accessible vehicles through 2020 until fifty percent of all yellow cabs are accessible. Currently less than two percent of all yellow taxis accessible.
