Suburban Wheelchair Accessible Taxicab/Livery Services

Provide a Federal Tax Credit or other economic incentive/subsidy to private for profit companies primarily engaged in demand responsive transportation services (taxicab or livery services) in suburban areas. Apart from nonemergency medical transportation, mass transit including ADA Para-transit, and Township Dial-A-Ride services there is no mandate and therefore no service that provides wheelchair accessible taxicab/livery services in suburban areas. Taxicab and livery service is typically available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Affordable wheelchair accessible transportation in the form of taxicab or livery services in suburban areas is needed by wheelchair users unable to transfer out of their mobility devices.
