LIRR reopens in Bed-Stuy after renovations with more accessibility for commuters with disabilities

Posted: Updated:

A Long Island Rail Road station in Bed-Stuy has reopened after undergoing renovations.

The new and improved station on Nostrand and Atlantic avenues is now more accessible for those who have disabilities. It had been under construction since 2017.

The two-track elevated station now has two American with Disabilities Act-accessible elevators, platform canopies, warning strips on both platforms, and new art glass installation created by a local artist.

Commuters will now get estimated train times and other messages concerning the station through new digital information displays. The renovation also features four new staircases.

In the spring, the MTA help points will be installed so that riders can report an emergency or ask for assistance through an interactive communications device.
