Achieving Accessibility

A Panel Discussion

Link to archived livestream of the event.

In a major shift, New York City Transit President Andy Byford’s Fast Forward plan aims to make every subway station accessible by 2034. With congestion pricing and other revenue sources secured in this year’s state budget, the agency should have the means to deliver. What can New York learn from its peers that are delivering for riders with disabilities?

Join TransitCenter & NYC Transit as we host senior accessibility officials from Chicago CTA and Boston MBTA, two agencies forging ahead on subway station accessibility and elevator reliability.
