Most New Yorkers find it easier to commute by public transportation in order to avoid the congested streets and highways. Unfortunately, those who suffer from disabilities may not be able to use everyday sources of public transportation. Access-A-Ride provides millions of rides for people in New York City who have disabilities and cannot use the bus or subway systems.
If you or a loved one was involved in an accident while riding in an Access-A-Ride vehicle, it is imperative that you hire an experienced New York Access-A-Ride accident attorney to help you get full compensation.

Access-A-Ride is a Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”) program that provides individuals who cannot use public subways or buses due to a disability to receive transportation services. When accidents occur, the New York City Transportation Authority (NYCTA), which is privately owned and operated, may be liable.
Access-A-Ride is a public paratransit system that uses small buses and vans to shuttle certain individuals to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other important functions.
Although the Access-A-Ride paratransit system serves an important role for many New Yorkers, these vehicles are frequently involved in serious motor vehicle accidents. Examples of accidents involving Access-A-Ride vehicles include:
– Pedestrian getting struck by an Access-A-Ride bus
– Passengers in an Access-A-Ride vehicle getting injured as a result of an accident with another vehicle
There are numerous agencies and individuals involved in Access-A-Ride’s operations. As such, there may be multiple sources of liability. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our experienced NYC paratransit attorneys routinely handle personal injury claims against the NYCTA.
