Disabled vie for better access in Montreal

Posted on December 22, 2010

MONTREAL — Members of the Regroupement Activisted Pour l'Inclusion Québec (RAPLIQ), which represents the disabled, is asking the City of Montreal to do more to improve wheelchair access to metro stations, according to CBC News.

Since the city began installing elevators in 2008, six of Montreal's 68 metro stations have been made wheelchair accessible and two more will soon have wheelchair access, however, RAPLIQ says the work isn't being done fast enough.

Adding a wheelchair-accessible elevator costs about $15 million per metro station, but three quarters of the cost is paid for by the provincial government. For the full story, click here.
