“New Yorkers know the truth: this lawsuit was never about process,” said Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer. “It was about maintaining the status quo for the few at the expense of drivers and the riding public. I have always believed it should be as easy to hail a cab in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, as it is on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, which is why my office filed an amicus brief in this case. Today, with this ruling, we as a city can stop treating the millions of hard-working New Yorkers who live outside Manhattan like second-class citizens when it comes to our transportation system. Instead, we can guarantee the same level of service for everyone, while vastly expanding accessibility for disabled riders.”
