More on Michael Bloomberg and Accessible Taxis

Google delivered this to my inbox a few moments ago:

I don't know if it's just me...I'm having an awfully hard time understanding what the new strategy is. It's been made about as convoluted as it could possibly get.  Garth Johnson, the author of the article, attempts to sum to it up:

"Instead of just picking a wheelchair-accessible cab that would have been built in Brooklyn, the TLC picked one that isn't which it will now try and maybe get retrofitted to be accessible at the same time adding yet another vehicle into the fleet and spending more money to create another version of the already-troubled Access-A-Ride program. Nope, still doesn't make sense."

Truer words never spoken, Mr. Johnson.
