The City Shortens a Lifeline for the Disabled

The MTA is planning changes to a program serving New Yorkers with disabilities, and some of them are not happy about it

David Isaacson, who suffers from kidney disease, must stay off mass transit in order to stay on the list for a kidney transplant. He uses an MTA pilot program called E-Hail to get around. The agency plans to install caps on monthly rides and deductions in the coming weeks, forcing disabled riders like David to figure out on their own how to adjust.

If you think you might be a kidney match for David, you can contact New York-Presbyterian Hospital at 212-746-3099 or email us at NewYorkCityLens@gmail.com.
