TAXI 07, sponsored by the Design Trust for Public Space, celebrates 100 years of gas-powered taxi service in New York City. Along with the Standard Taxi, TAXI 07 will feature other wheelchair-accessible taxis, alternative fuel taxis, and historic taxis. It is being held in conjunction with the 2007 New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center.
United Spinal's Taxis For All- North America project has worked informally with the innovators of the first factory-built, wheelchair-accessible taxicab, the Standard Taxi, since early 2006. During this time, we have seen momentum and interest in this unique vehicle grow among persons with disabilities, operators and drivers of taxi service, and public transportation agencies who recognize the Standard Taxi’s ability to reduce costs in ADA paratransit service.

Tell A Friend

Increasing the number of accessible cabs all over the country will mean that people with disabilities will have equal transportation options. If wheelchair users learn about this vehicle by seeing it at the Javits Center, they are more likely to return home and advocate for accessible taxis in their communities.
