Celebrate ADA 32!

Today is the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This important civil rights law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. The MTA has just settled lawsuits and has vowed to make 95% of subway stations accessible by 2055 – dedicating 52% of the 2020-24 Capital Program’s stations resources to expanding accessibility. This is good news for riders throughout the MTA region that rely on accessible trips to get them to school, jobs, doctor’s appointments, and every other aspect of public life. There is still more work that is needed and the PCAC and Councils will continue to advocate for even more accessibility improvements throughout the MTA. Happy 32nd ADA Anniversary!!
