These are the NYC Subway Stations with Elevators

If you’re pushing a stroller or you use a wheelchair, these subway stations with elevators in NYC are your best bet for getting around on public transportation.


You know how it goes: You’re running for the subway on a day out with the kids, but you get to the station with your stroller and your toddler and there’s no elevator, so you have to schlepp everything up or down the stairs. If you’re a wheelchair user, an inaccessible station can mean you’re forced to completely change around your travel plans. It’s important to know which subway stations across the city have elevators; you also need a Reduced-Fare AutoGate MetroCard to be able to access the entry/exit gates within accessible stations that are meant for people with ambulatory disabilities, who use mobility devices, or who have service animals. These are the subway stations that have elevators, making it easier to get around if you have a stroller or a wheelchair.
