PARKCHESTER - Disabled subway riders in Parkchester say an MTA project to spruce up the local subway station doesn't meet their needs.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has put $34 million toward renovating the 177th Street station, but says an elevator is not being put in. Advocates for disabled riders have started a petition calling for the elevator to be installed.

State Assemblyman Peter Rivera says the MTA has low-cost options if it decides to install the elevator.
