New System Makes Hailing A Wheelchair-Accessible Taxi Easy In New York
In order to help with the problem, a new system created by Metro Taxi has launched. Called Accessible Dispatch, the company uses a GPS system to tracks each of the 233 wheelchair-accessible taxis. These can be ordered by:
- Calling 311
- Calling the dispatch center directly: (646) 599-9999
- Texting a request to: (646) 400-0789
- Using the mobile app "Wheels on Wheels" (WOW Taxi)
- Ordering online at www.nycaccessibledispatch.org
"This is an entirely new kind of service," said Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky, "and it is a real and tangible reflection of our dedication to making quality taxicab service available to all those who want it."
