As an accessible taxicab driver, you need to take a Commission-approved training course. The training is in how to service passengers with disabilities and help passengers who use wheelchairs in and out of the vehicle. Your medallion owner will pay for this training. At the end of the training, you will get a certificate of completion from the training course. You must show this to the accessible medallion owner before driving the vehicle, and you need to keep a copy with you in the vehicle. As a driver of a wheelchair accessible taxicab, you must help a wheelchair passenger to and from the sidewalk curb. You must also secure the passenger and his/her belongings in the vehicle. Time for unloading may not be charged.
