Group holding signs
On the sidewalk outside of Manhattan's Penn Station, a group of people in wheelchairs protests the inaccessibility of New York City yellow cabs to people who use wheelchairs and electric scooters. From left to right (in wheelchairs), Alexander Wood, Luda Demikhovskaya, Frieda Zames, Carr Massi, and on an electric scooter an unidentified woman. In the background, Anne Davis (in red jacket, standing on the left) is seen talking with Councilmember Margarita Lopez (in gray suit, standing on the right).

Alexander Wood holds up a sign reading "Have YOU Signed onto INTRO 84 yet?" Carr Massi holds up a yellow sign reading "We Want YOU INTRO 84". Luda Demikhovskaya, Frieda Zames, and the unidentified woman in an electric scooter all have signs reading "Taxis for All Campaign - Mayor Bloomberg: It's Time We Got a Ride!"

Councilmember Margarita Lopez introduced this bill, Intro 84, to require that when a taxi is taken out of service -- as it must be after three to five years with rare exceptions -- a wheelchair accessible vehicle must replace it.
