New York City Taxis Are Looped

Mar 9 2009

Ellen Semel, HLA-Manhattan Chapter planning committee chair, reports that induction loops are being installed and tested in New York City taxis as part of a pilot project for accessible taxis. Some chapter members tested the looped taxis on Tuesday, March 3. The taxis were available both before the chapter meeting to allow members the opportunity to listen to speech using a t-coil in the taxi and evaluate their performance. The results of the evaluations will be sent with a report to the Taxi and Limousine Commission in New York City.
