Many transit stations either have elevators or ramps for riders to enter and exit stations. However, many stations have elevators that break and experience inclement weather that prevents the use of one or the other. This has created a number of limits and an increased distrust of riders with assistive devices from using transportation services with elevated stations. Future FTA funding for station improvements should require the inclusion of more than one type of accessible way for riders to enter and exit stations, or prioritize stations that are built at street level.
