Schumer, Meng rally in Rego Park, call for accessible subway renovations


U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, Congresswoman Grace Meng and transit activists gathered at the Rego Park 63rd Drive station to urge New York state to make accessibility upgrades to subway stations across the city.

The Infrastructure and Jobs Act that was passed last year will send an estimated $11 billion to the MTA, and federal leaders Schumer and Meng are now calling on state representatives to do their part and allocate the money to much-needed transit upgrades.
