PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- A group representing disabled citizens and two wheelchair users are suing Metro-North Railroad in an effort to make the Port Chester train station fully accessible, according to LoHud.com.
The lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday by The Westchester Independent Living Center, states that wheelchair users are unable to use the northbound platform without having to negotiate four sets of stairs, LoHud.com reported.
Metro-North recently spent about $5 million to renovate the facility but allegedly did not improve access for those with mobility issues. The commuter rail said they are exploring options to improve access, LoHud.com said.
