Access-A-Ride

Each year, Mobilization for Justice serves more than 3,000 New Yorkers who are at least 60 years old or have a disability.

Mobilization for Justice provides New Yorkers with the legal assistance they need to remain in the community, including helping them access the benefits to which they are entitled, improve the accessibility of their homes, and access transportation.

Tens of thousands of New Yorkers with disabilities rely on New York City’s paratransit system, Access-A-Ride, to get to work, doctors’ appointments, shop, and visit friends and family. Mobilization for Justice assists people with disabilities who have been denied Access-A-Ride or who have had their benefits reduced or terminated to file appeals.  In 2016, Mobilization for Justice and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP settled a class action lawsuit on behalf of Access-A-Ride users. The settlement requires New York City Transit to improve its procedures and make it easier for users to appeal a decision.

If you need assistance with an Access-A-Ride problem, please call us toll-free at 888-510-2272.
