Accessible Metro Subway Features



Elevators & Escalators:

The Metro system has renovated elevators and escalators at station entrances to include the repositioning of control panels and railings to make these controls more accessible. We provide elevator and escalator service from the street entrance of a station to train platform. 

Tactile Warning Strips:
There are tactile warning strips in place at the edge of Metro Subway train boarding platforms.  Please stand behind the tactile warning strip to ensure that you will be out of danger from the approaching train.

Accessible Parking:
Accessible parking spaces are available for our customers who drive to a Metro Subway Station. You must display a valid  MVA permit or have the license plates.

Automatic Voice Annunciators:
Automatic voice annunciators and interior destination signs along with Braille station guides has improved mobility for the visually impaired community.

Priority Seating:
There are seats in the front of each Metro Subway car that are designated as priority seats for seniors and people with disabilities. The MTA requires that these seats be made available to eligible customers upon request.
