 MTA BEGINS TO RECERTIFY PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
 WHO RIDE FOR REDUCED FARE
 BALTIMORE, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Public transportation customers with disabilities who ride for a reduced fare must re-apply to the Mass Transit Administration (MTA) for a new photo identification card.
 Applications are now available at public libraries or by calling the MTA at 410-333-3568.
 The MTA will begin issuing new disability reduced-fare photo I.D. cards Thursday, July 2, 1992, and continue for the next six months. In order to ride with the MTA for a reduced fare, passengers with disabilities must have the new photo I.D. card by Jan. 26, 1993.
 All MTA customers currently enrolled in the disability reduced-fare and paratransit (Mobility) programs must re-register. Customers should mail completed applications to the MTA for evaluation.
 After the application has been evaluated and accepted, the customer will receive a data card from the MTA along with information on where to go to get a new photo I.D. card. Walk-in registration is not possible because of the time required to evaluate disability applications.
 The MTA's photo I.D. office on the first floor of 300 W. Lexington St. is open Mondays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Photos will also be shot at other locations from July through January 1993. A complete schedule will be available soon.
 Beginning in July, the MTA photo I.D. office will accommodate both senior citizens and people with disabilities. Seniors can register on-site for photos; disability card customers are required to be pre- registered and have a data card.
 Seniors citizens with a disability who already have an MTA photo I.D. card need not re-apply.
