Access-a-Ride Reform Group (AARRG!)
With the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled, the Center for the Independence of the Disabled New York, and Mobilization for Justice, NYLPI launched the Access-A-Ride Reform Group (AARRG!) campaign to reform the New York City paratransit system. We have stopped a fare increase that would have disproportionately impacted Access-A-Ride users; moved Access-A-Ride problems higher on the public transportation agenda by testifying before the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, met with MTA officials, advocated to the Governor, and met with MTA Board members and elected officials. The campaign led to the launch of the MTA’s pilot project for on-demand service. Throughout, we have helped individual applicants become eligible for services.
