MTA to install over 20 new elevators in NYC subway stations
New York City subway stations may soon look different as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's mission to make 95% of subway stations accessible for all.
The MTA has announced 17 additional stations across the city will receive accessibility upgrades including installing 29 new elevators at designated stations.
Dustin Jones, founder of United for Equal Access New York, praised the accessibility expansion and saying it's long overdue.
The MTA is also projecting that some of their previously announced upgrades should be complete this year, such as two stations in the Bronx and five in Brooklyn.
