ABOUT ACCESSIBLE DISPATCH
Accessible Dispatch launched in September 2012 as a 24/7 accessibility program. The goal of the program is to connect New Yorkers who use wheelchairs and other mobility aids to yellow and green accessible taxis at no extra cost. With expanded coverage and more accessible vehicles, mobility impaired residents and visitors can now access the city like never before.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: Request a ride using one of the following methods:
– Call our dispatch center directly at (646)-599-9999
– Use the Accessible Dispatch mobile app
– Book online
STEP 2: Accessible Dispatch sends the closest available wheelchair accessible vehicle to your pick-up location.
STEP 3: You will receive a confirmation from the Accessible Dispatcher that includes the taxi number. This will allow you to easily find your driver. The Dispatcher may also communicate with you directly if the driver has trouble finding you.
STEP 4: When you find your taxi, your driver will provide assistance in helping you enter using the vehicle’s ramp as needed. They will also secure you using the vehicle’s wheelchair securement system.
STEP 5: At your destination, your driver will help you exit the vehicle and get safely to the curb.
ACCESSIBLE DISPATCH WANTS YOUR FEEDBACK!
