New York City Accessible Information
For travelers that require the use of wheelchairs or scooters, New York and its many establishments are welcoming visitors by providing disabled access in many areas.
On the Street - Most street corners provide curb cuts that allow for easy wheelchair and scooter travel. Many restaurants, boutiques and movie theaters offer step-up entrances with wheelchair ramps as well.
Attractions and Sightseeing - Most public facilities in New York City, whether museums, parks, or theaters, are wheelchair-accessible. Some attractions have tours or programs for people with mobility, sight, or hearing impairments.
Transportation - Many subway stations are still quite difficult to navigate, other than the major subway exchanges. Wheelchair riders are recommended to use the public transit buses, most of which have wheelchair lifts and "kneelers" at the front to facilitate getting on and off (bus drivers will provide assistance). Reduced fares are available to disabled passengers who display a valid Medicare card. Visitors to the city are also eligible for the same Access-a-Ride program benefits as New York City residents. Drivers with disabilities may use windshield cards from their own state or Canadian province to park in designated handicapped spaces.
Helpful Links - The following websites provide useful information about access in New York City along with various visitor, tourism and informational websites on NYC.
Your electric scooter is a state-of-the-art device designed to increase your mobility and enhance your travel experience. Please be aware that the correct care and operation of the scooter is your responsibility. If you are unsure how to operate the scooter, please ask your Scootaround representative for assistance prior to operating the vehicle. If you are unfamiliar with operating the scooter in crowded areas such as a convention or a tradeshow, please take some added time to practice the safe operation of the vehicle. Here are some further points to consider:
