Access-a-ride blocks disabled access

In New York there is a service that is supposed to make the lives of the elderly, infirmed and disabled easier by providing door to door access, well this isn’t the first time I have come across their drivers acting in a manner that totally destroys any good they do.
Last year I was seriously screamed at and abused when an access -a-ride bus was parked completely blocking a wheelchair ramp.
Well we were rolling down parsons boulevard yesterday, and right across the road from a major hospital and around the corner from a major rehab facility the pic below shows a access-a-ride blocking the up ramp on a crosswalk making any wheelchair access impossible?!

Access for who access-a-ride?
Get your crap together access-a-ride, and don’t tell me this is a first I can show you dozens of pics like this.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
