I'm sorry, but people have used wc in the past and now this person sues out of the blue? I don't buy her bs at all. Just a way to get rich quick. People need to realize that this system was never intended to be fully ada in the first place. And rather than to waste millions to get every platform to be 100% ada compliant, why not just send the wc rider a cab and have the tlc send the bill to the MTA? The taxi gets the wc rider from point a to b directly and the MTA can use the money for more important matters such as fixing up decaying stations. Fix all the stations in the system including the god awful Chambers st, and then they can allocate the budget to making platforms as 'gap free' as possible.
You have to understand that at one time she was an able bodied person like you and now she has been forced to get around in a wheelchair. Imagine the frustration of being able to go wherever you want when you want and that being suddenly taken away from you. People usually don't care about things like this until they realize that it affects them, so it makes sense that she is suing.
As I said before folks can't make up their mind. The MTA wants to force disabled people to use the bus and cut Access-A-Ride instead of making more subway stations ADA accessible. I still think that this nonsense about having a certainly amount of monies go to artwork is a complete waste. Getting people around should be the #1 priority over artwork.
