NYS is Hosting Regional Transportation Access, Ride Sharing Forums for People w Disabilities

NYAPRS Note: The following comes from Andrew Karhan of the NYS Office of Mental Health.

NYS is hosting five regional forums related to the Transportation Network Company (TNC) Accessibility Task Force.   The TNC Taskforce was established through the Transportation Network Company Act - the law that brought ride sharing services to Upstate New York and Long Island.   The goal of the forums is to ensure that the TNC’s operating in Upstate New York and on Long Island are meeting the needs of the diverse group of people who utilize their services, in particular, individuals with disabilities.
