Wheelchair Users Stage ‘Roll-In’ Protest Against ‘Taxi of Tomorrow’

Published: November 3, 2011

FLATIRON — Wearing yellow buttons stating “Separate is NOT equal,” a dozen advocates in wheelchairs rolled into the “Taxi of Tomorrow” exhibit near Madison Square Park Thursday to raise concerns about the lack of disability access in the city’s forthcoming fleet of cabs.

The “Roll-In” protest against the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission exhibit was designed to pressure officials to reverse their position on accommodating disabled riders before New York City’s newly designed fleet of cabs hits the streets in 2013.
