With all the handicapped/wheelchair topics being thrown around right now maybe it would be a good idea to look at Metry Cab Service in Jefferson. They already have ADA compliant taxi cab vans. I use them all the time with my disability. I have always said give credit where credit is due and I think they deserve some here since they are the first ADA taxi service in the entire Greater New Orleans Area. While everyone else sat back and argued/bickered and turened a blind eye to us they actually went out and provided an additional service for us. I believe this is why they have been in business for so long (I believe since 1945) because they are true community supporters not just a tourist driven company, it feels good that they service and care for the people who live here first. Thanks Rob
