My name is Peter Ibik. For the past 17 years, I have driven a wheelchair-accessible taxi for Barwood in Montgomery County, Md. The taxi system isn’t working for drivers or passengers in Montgomery County, especially those requiring wheelchair-accessible transportation. We have been working on legislative reforms that are pro-passenger and pro-driver. We have gotten support from a majority of council members on reforms that are good for drivers. But these reforms have fallen short for people who need accessible taxis.
