This rule will damage car service business completely. I will oppose to new proposed rule for wheal chair accessible vehicles. If I have to dispatch 25% of my calls to W/C accessible then what my drivers who come to work for my base will do? It will lead to collapse and closure all small businesses like my. What about drivers who came to work for me? I emigrate to United States from communist country where was no competition no small business and everyone was getting equal, that rule you propose creates communists era deals, for those people like me I invest my hard earned money into my business and now I have to give away part of my earnings to some one I don't even know. First TLC invented green boro taxi, next uber and lyft come to work in New York and now this new rule????? I still believe in competition let uber and lyft give they jobs to green boro W/C taxis. Regards, Alexander Kalendariov business owner. Copy of this letter will be sent to Albany rule makers.
