NYLPI’s Public Transportation project works to ensure that people with disabilities have full access to the subways, taxis, buses and ferries that many people take for granted. The ability to travel independently within the city’s integrated transit system should be a right guaranteed to all New Yorkers. Our work in this area has included the following;
- Taxis For All Campaign
In 2007, NYLPI worked with Taxis For All to advise Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s project to design a new, energy efficient, fully accessible automobile for New York’s taxi fleet.
- Ferry Terminals
Over the years, NYLPI has successfully campaigned to increase the accessibility of ferry boats and terminals in New York City.
