Detroit disability advocates on city's plan to cut paratransit: "They can't do that"

Dessa Cosma, executive director of Detroit Disability Power, said she’s grateful that “City Council listened to the disabled residents that came and made their concerns known,” but that “that big question mark is pretty concerning.”

“I do think my feeling is that the city will have to figure something out,” Cosma said. “The administration [of Mayor Mike Duggan] will have to figure out how to make this work in 2023.

“Frankly, they're really on notice that they need to step it up and just do a better job here in Detroit.”
