Wheelchair accessible taxis have manual ramps that the driver lowers to the ground so a wheelchair can roll into the taxi. Inside the taxi, the wheelchair is secured in place. The firmly fixed securements meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Drivers are trained to help the passenger and properly secure the wheelchair.

You can file a complaint with 311 if there is an issue with a driver.
