A popular Access-a-Ride program that lets some people with limited mobility use an app to book on-demand trips in the city for $2.75 each will continue past mid-April, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) sources announced in March. The pilot program, capped at 1,200 people, was to be replaced in April with a program that would let Access-a-Ride customers ride 16 times for free until the metered cost of their ride hits $15. After that, they’d have to pay the balance of their ride’s cost.

The changes to the pilot program – which would have doubled the number of users – was postponed until further notice, after disability advocates requested the delay.
