The majority of the New York City Subway system was built before 1990, the year the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) went into effect. As a side effect, many New York City Subway stations were not designed to be accessible to disabled people. Since then, elevators have been built in newly constructed stations to comply with the ADA. (Most grade-level stations required little modification to meet ADA standards.) In addition, the MTA identified "key stations," high-traffic and/or geographically important stations, which must conform to the ADA when they are extensively renovated.[1] As of January 2017, out of 472 total stations in the system, 117 are accessible;[a] many of them have AutoGate access.[2][3][4] Five stations on the Staten Island Railway are also accessible. Additionally, there are 16 more non-ADA-accessible stations with cross-platform interchanges, as well as other same-platform transfers, designed to handle wheelchair transfers.[4]

Context[edit]

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has been gradually adding handicapped access to its key stations since the 1980s, as renovations take place. According to the MTA:

In improving services to individuals with disabilities, the MTA identified stations and facilities where compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) would benefit the most people, analyzing such factors as high ridership, transfer points, and service to major areas of activity. These stations were given priority in our station-renovation program. We are continuing to expand accessibility features to more and more locations.[5]

According to the MTA, fully accessible stations have:

  • elevators or ramps
  • handrails on ramps and stairs
  • large-print and tactile-Braille signs
  • audio and visual information systems
  • accessible station booth windows
  • accessible MetroCard Vending Machines
  • accessible service entry gates
  • platform-edge warning strips
  • platform gap modifications or bridge plates to reduce or eliminate the gap between trains and platforms
  • telephones at an accessible height with volume control, and text telephones (TTYs)
  • accessible restrooms at commuter rail stations with restrooms
    • Note: not all station buildings have restrooms.[5]

The MTA has been criticized for the lack of accessibility in the New York City Subway. Only 19% of all of the subway system's stations are fully accessible to people with disabilities.[6] Notably, places such as Woodlawn, south Brooklyn, and Astoria do not have any accessible stations. Many transfer stations, such as Chambers Street, Broadway Junction, Delancey Street–Essex Street, 14th Street/Sixth Avenue, and 42nd Street–Bryant Park/Fifth Avenue are not wheelchair-accessible, making it harder to travel between different parts of the city. The G and Rockaway Park Shuttle each have one accessible station, while the 42nd Street Shuttle is not accessible. Although all New York City buses are accessible, transfers between bus routes, as well as the bus trips themselves, are usually cumbersome because buses run at a much lower frequency than the subway does.[7]

List of accessible stations[edit]
