Chicago's Improved Taxis for People with Disabilities

The number of wheelchair accessible cabs in Chicago has risen by 50% since the beginning of the year. Chicago has added 47 new wheelchair accessible vehicles to its taxi fleet. In order to offset the cost of such vehicles, the city has determined to allow the its new wheelchair accessible taxis to remain on the streets for five years instead of the typically mandatory four year period.

This is a major improvement for taxis in Chicago and comes on the heels of New York's recent ADA problems related to New York's taxis. To learn more about this story, check out the following link:
