DRN Comments on Wheelchair Accessible Taxi Regulations

The Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania submitted comments on July 7, 2014 to the Pennsylvania Independent Regulatory Commission urging the approval of the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s proposed Regulations No. 126-5, which will ensure the introduction of 150 wheelchair accessible taxicabs in the City of Philadelphia over the next several years and sets forth requirements governing their design and operation.

These regulations are a huge victory for the disability community and will greatly expand the transportation opportunities for people with disabilities as well as expand opportunities for employment, recreation, and full participation in the community.
