Handicap accessibility improved at Port Jervis station

NEW YORK – Until now, persons with physical disabilities had a difficult, if not impossible time, getting on and off Metro-North Railroad trains at the Port Jervis station.

That has changed now, railroad President Catherine Rinaldi told the Metro-North Committee of the MTA on Monday.

She noted the completion of the construction of a mini-high-level platform at the Port Jervis station to help accessibility for our riders who use wheelchairs or have mobility-based disabilities.”

The platform was constructed after a local citizens group raised the issue. Other long-term improvements to the Port Jervis station are also planned for the future.
