Jean Ryan testimony
The person wearing a hat with her long coat resting on the back of her motorized wheelchair is Jean Ryan (pictured lower right, her back to our view while sitting in her wheelchair). Ryan is shown speaking to the some of the members of the Taxi and Limousine Commission, who are seated behind their tables (pictured center).

On the wall of the room are the letters "TLC" with an indentified logo to the left of the "T". Also at the wall, four flags are seen standing, two on the left and two on the right - the leftmost being the American flag. Taped on the back of Jean Ryan's back is a paper sign reading "Mayor Bloomberg First Things First - Taxis for ALL".

The TLC plans (as of May 4, 2005) to upgrade the city's taxicabs with satellite global positioning systems. Ryan asked at the hearing "What good is an information screen or credit card machine or other high-tech feature, if we can't even get into the cab in the first place?"
