  1. Drivers must be required to speak and understand fluent English in order to effectively communicate with passengers. Isn’t this part of NYC Civil and Human Rights, as well as an ADA requirement? I’m Legally Blind and keep getting drivers who don’t, or barely, speak English. This results in an inability to tell them where I”m going, drop off point, as well as give directions. Sometimes during the trip I want to know where we are, or ask to know the meter fee, none of which can be communicated to me. How is this fair to me? I’m a paying customer. Don’t I have a right to be able to speak to the driver?
