People with Disabilities Fight Back Against Unfair Access-A-Ride Policies

Five people with disabilities filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against New York City Transit (NYCT) for the unconstitutional policies of Access-A-Ride, the City’s paratransit service for people with disabilities. MFY Legal Services, Inc. and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, who are representing the plaintiffs, found that NYCT fails to tell applicants and those recertifying eligibility why they are being denied services or receiving reduced services and that they have the right to appeal the denial in court.
