The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is required to make 100 centrally located, or “key stations,” accessible by 2020. On March 15, 2010, the MTA’s Office of ADA Compliance said there are nine stations under construction to become accessible. Seven are scheduled for completion in the next two years with the installation of ADA elevators.
By the end of 2010, the MTA plans to complete the work at the 96th Street station on the 1, 2 and 3 lines and the Jay Street station on the A, C and F lines.
Next year, the MTA plans to finish upgrading the Kings Highway Station on the B and Q lines, the Bleecker Street station on the 6 line, the Broadway-Lafayette station on the B, D, F and V lines and the Mott Avenue station on the A line.
Work at the Bay Parkway station on the D and M lines is planned for completion in March 2012. The MTA also plans to achieve accessibility at the Cortlandt Street stop of the R and W trains and the East 180th Street station on the 2 and 5 lines.
