Senator Luis Sepulveda hit the concrete, advocating for residents to sign a petition to have the Metropolitan Transportation Authority install an elevator at the Parkchester #6 IRT stations which currently operates without one.

He stood outside the station at Hugh Grant Circle, collecting 204 petition signatures requesting an elevator be included in the MTA’s new, five-year capital plan, on Friday, August 30.

“The Parkchester train station has waited far too long for an elevator. The thousands of commuters who pass through, or are excluded from, this massive transit hub every day deserve to have a fully functioning and ADA-compliant station, to serve all residents and workers of Parkchester and beyond,” Sepulveda said following the petitioning.

He is working with the Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee Timothy M. Kennedy, while also contacting the Governor’s office and the MTA to establish an estimated funding of 30-50 Million for the elevator, according to his office.
