“Taxis are an essential component of the transportation system in New York City, and therefore we have a duty and obligation to make sure that they are as accessible as possible to everyone.”

“Mayor Bloomberg says taxis are part of the public transit system of New York. He's right, and so they should be treated aptly. Every city bus and renovated major subway station is accessible. The same should be true of taxis.”
Daily News editorial
“Why shouldn't cabs be accessible? I've never heard one good reason. It's simply the right thing to do.”
— Diane McGrath-MacKechnie, former TLC Chair
