When NYC Transit announced in May 2018 the Fast Forward plan to modernize NYC’s transit system, it was a first step towards addressing critical shortfalls in the system for people with disabilities. Within the next five years, the MTA’s Capital Program aims to make another 70 subway stations ADA-accessible; expand on-demand ride hailing and tracking for MTA’s Access-a-Ride service; test new visual and aural wayfinding features; and pilot new accessible bus models and operator training.
Join Open House New York for a conversation about ongoing efforts to make New York City transit more accessible with Alex Elegudin, Senior Adviser for Systemwide Accessibility, MTA, followed by a discussion with Quemuel Arroyo, Global Head of Community, Charge; Jaqi Cohen, Campaign Director, Straphangers Campaign; and moderator Colin Wright, Senior Advocacy Associate, TransitCenter.
