LONG ISLAND CITY, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2014) - HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), www.HascoMed.com, parent company of Ride-Away®, a company that conducts retail and commercial sales of handicap accessible vans, parts, service and rental operations in nineteen locations from Maine to Florida and sales of medical equipment and supplies in Florida announces a new Ride-Away® Commercial Taxi location in New York City.
Regulations from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) have mandated that 50% of the 13,000 cabs in NYC must be wheelchair accessible by 2020, with a wheelchair accessible vehicle medallion auction happening before 2016. To meet this need, Ride-Away® (www.Ride-Away.com) Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles has established a New York City office to better serve the growing needs of owners of Taxi, Livery and Paratransit vehicles in the market. Ride-Away® has provided wheelchair accessible taxis to NYC for a decade and the introduction of this office in the heart of the city will deliver a higher level of customer service to taxi and base station owners.
Ride-Away's® preferred vendor for wheelchair accessible Taxi's is BraunAbility (www.braunability.com), the largest manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vans. Coinciding with the opening of the new taxi location, Ride-Away® is announcing a limited number of used BraunAbility Dodge Grand Caravan manual rear entry paratransit taxis that are converted, painted and ready for TLC inspection for under $30,000 through May 1st, 2014. Ride-Away is clearing out the remaining inventory with each van offering BraunAbility's ADA compliance with TLC flooring, heavy duty rear suspension, and CAFE certification.
Taxi owners seeking to serve the outer boroughs of New York can take part in the Green Apple Accessible (www.greenappleaccessible.com) program. Ride-Away will provide help with the TLC Grant process which gives up to $15,000 towards a new Green Apple wheelchair accessible taxi.
