(PRWEB) May 22, 2014

Ride-Away®, Inc., a subsidiary of HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: HASC), has seen unprecedented demand from yellow and green taxi purchasers in New York City resulting in additional orders of over 100 wheelchair accessible taxis to meet future demand.

Regulations from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) have mandated that 50 percent of the 13,000 cabs in NYC must be wheelchair accessible by 2020. Due to these requirements sales at the Ride-Away® New York City office, since opening in early April have outpaced expectations. This location currently has access to 50 wheelchair accessible taxis in addition to the new order.

Ride-Away is prepared to meet the demand with the new order and is excited to announce a $500 discount on all BraunAbility Toyota taxis including “full hack” (taxi uplift, certified as safe and outfitted with all necessary equipment) on all 2014’s ordered. This promotion for the Toyota rear-entry wheelchair accessible taxi conversion from BraunAbility offers industry leading reliability and a low cost of ownership to taxi owners concerned about maintenance and gas prices. BraunAbility taxis are ADA compliant 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 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.
