The brief, filed by New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and Mobilization for Justice on behalf of themselves and United Spinal Association and Disabled in Action, underscores the difficulties faced by New Yorkers with disabilities in accessing public transportation and describes how the plaintiffs have failed to comply with existing law. The advocates also call on the City to enforce its existing and newly-adopted regulations which mandate equivalent services, and to increase its oversight and enforcement of the for-hire vehicle access mandates.
