MTA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer: Make the wheelchair accessible subway stations consistently accessible!

    1. Petition by

This is a campaign to bring necessary attention to the inconsistencies in wheelchair accessibility within the NYC MTA Subway System. This is an issue of corporate accountability. This is an issue of safety. If the MTA lists a station as "Wheelchair Accessible" then it needs to BE wheelchair accessible, but it's not consistently so. I've personally experienced this too many times, which was not only scary but downright dangerous. When you file a complaint with the MTA, they give you the same answer : "thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We will pass this on to the appropriate supervisors." and then nothing changes. It's time to fight back. Whether you are in a wheelchair or not, please sign the petition and share this with everyone you know. The MTA should not be allowed to get away with this, and it is only because they are the only game in town, that they do. Thank you. http://mindthegapmta.tumblr.com/

      I have friends who are differently-abled, and it's pathetic to see public facilities in such a state.
