Access Delayed: New York City Transit 28 Years after the ADA
July 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Twenty-eight years after the Americans With Disabilities Act, merely 24% of New York’s subway stations are available to people who use wheelchairs, the elderly, and all riders who require elevators. With new leadership at New York City Transit and an agency commitment to full accessibility by 2034, we may see a far more accessible subway system in our lifetimes.
