MTA Zoning Accessibility Info

ELEVATE TRANSIT: Zoning for Accessibility

Managing Agency: MTA-NYC Transit
Location: 
CityWide Transit Stations
Project Description: Elevate Transit: Zoning for Accessibility is a City-wide zoning proposal that will help make more subway and railroad stations in NYC accessible, and do so faster and cheaper. Working in partnership New York City Department of City Planning (DCP), the New York City Council, and the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities on this initiative.

Expected Date of Completion: 2024

Project Details: Elevate Transit: Zoning for Accessibility will expand the areas in which MTA and DCP can work with real estate developers to build and create a new program where they can leave space in their developments for us to build an elevator or other station access point in the future. Zoning for Accessibility will go through a formal land use review process starting this Spring. That means it will be reviewed by Community Boards and Borough Presidents, and hopefully get the approval of the City Planning Commission and the City Council. In the meantime, we’re trying to spread the word and let everyone know the importance of Zoning for Accessibility for straphangers
