Subway Inaccessibility in NYC

The inaccessibility of the subway is an historical struggle for the disabled community of NYC. During the pandemic, even with the drastic reduction of ridership due to stay-at-home orders, it remains a pressing and unresolved issue. Disabled people are taking a stance asking for more elevators as only 25% of the subway stations are accessible. In these two short videos, Dustin Jones President & Founder
United For Equal Access NY Inc. discusses his role as an activist, and the consequences of transportation inaccessibility on his life but also for the disability community as a whole. —Yan Grenier
