  尽管MTA刚开始说不太可能让残疾人士进入迪克曼1号地铁站,我们还是得知当局计划于2014年在南行线上安装一部电梯
  在当局宣布总价2400万美元的车站不包括方便残疾人士的消息一年后,MTA和残疾拥护者团体美国脊椎协会发布了这一新消息。
  双方的一致决定来源于美国脊椎协会起诉MTA,在北曼哈顿不能满足1号线残疾乘客的需要。
  美国脊椎协会高级副主席和总顾问,詹姆斯•韦斯曼说:“在计划的车站翻新过程中安装电梯可以促进坐轮椅的乘客来访问。”
  “这项重大的决议将提高地铁站有移动困难的乘客的访问量。”
  通过和解,MTA承诺在迪克曼大街地铁南行站台安装一部电梯,以方便残疾人士和使用婴儿车及推车的老年人上下车。
  MTA发言人迪尔德丽帕克在一封邮件中说:“我们很高兴能为迪克曼大街的乘客消除障碍。”
  根据韦斯曼的说法,地铁站的配置将不允许在北行道上安装电梯,这就意味着想要到北边站台的残疾人将需要乘坐到242街站,然后返回到南行列车。
  “MTA纽约城市运输局总的地铁站修复总是含有ADA因素,能在基金允许的范围内最大程度减少车站的障碍。”
  根据权威的说法,尽管迪克曼大街修复的花费大约是2400万美元,整体选择不受MTA法规(工程20%的花费要用在方便ADA方面)约束。
  电梯安装的总成本还是未知数,因为还处在MTA的设计阶段。当局计划在2012年为电梯安装安排竞标。
  对韦斯曼来说,即使部分的减少障碍也是在正确方向上迈了一步。
  “车站翻新时消除障碍对公共运输来说有重大的经济意义,”他说,“提供通路的费用只是翻新费用的一小部分。”
  根据美国脊椎协会的说法,“在伍德,为残疾人提供通道特别重要,”因为住在迪克曼大街站附近的25.1%的人都自我认定有某种形式的残疾。
  迪克曼大街修复工程是更大的,价值4500万美元的翻新项目的一部分。该项目沿着1号线,从迪克曼大街到布朗克斯区第242号大街。在北曼哈顿,该工程还包括重建第207号和215号大街车站的楼梯和罩棚。

 


MTA Agrees to Add Elevator at Dyckman Street Subway Station Following Lawsuit

  UPPER MANHATTAN — Although the MTA originally said it would be impossible to make the Dyckman 1 train station accessible to disabled people, the authority plans to install an elevator on the southbound side by 2014, DNAinfo has learned.
  The announcement by the MTA and disability advocacy group United Spinal Association comes a year after the authority announced a $24 million overhaul of the station would not include making it accessible for people with physical disabilities, DNAinfo first reported.
  The agreement comes as part of the United Spinal Association's class-action lawsuit against the MTA for its failure to meet the needs of disabled 1 train riders in northern Manhattan.
  "Installing elevators during scheduled station renovations goes far to promote transportation access for people who use wheelchairs,” said James Weisman, senior vice president and general counsel for the United Spinal Association.
  “This is a significant resolution that will enhance subway access for all users of the station with mobility challenges.”
  Through the settlement, the MTA promised to install an elevator at the southbound platform of the Dyckman Street Station, enabling people with physical disabilities, the elderly or people who use baby carriages or carts to get on and off southbound 1 trains.
  According to Weisman, the landmarked station’s configuration will not allow for an elevator on the northbound side of the station, meaning mobility-impaired riders wishing to use the northbound platform would need to ride to the 242nd Street station and return on a southbound train.
  “We are pleased that we will be able to improve accessibility for our customers at Dyckman Street,” said MTA spokeswoman Deirdre Parker in an email.
  “MTA New York City Transit has always included ADA elements in station rehabs and remains committed to enhancing the accessibility of our stations to the extent that funding allows. To that end, we will continue to review the need for, and feasibility of, elevators in connection with future station rehabilitations.”
  Although the cost of the Dyckman Street rehabilitation is approximately $24 million, the entire tab is not subject to MTA regulations stipulating that 20 percent of a project's total cost go toward making the station ADA-accessible, according to the authority.
  The total cost of the elevator installation is unknown, as it is still in the design phase with the MTA. The authority plans to put out a bid for the installation in 2012.
  For Weisman, even partial accessibility is a move in the right direction.
  “Making stations accessible as they are renovated makes great economic sense for public transit," he said. "The cost of providing access is a small part of renovation costs.”
  According to the United Spinal Association, “access for people with disabilities is especially important in Inwood,” where 25.1 percent of people living near the Dyckman Street station are self identified as having some form of disability.
  The Dyckman Street rehabilitation is part of a larger $45 million renovation along the 1 train line from Dyckman Street to 242nd Street in the Bronx. In northern Manhattan, the project also includes the reconstruction of stairs and canopies at the 207th and 215th street stations.
