Posted: Updated:

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced new systemwide upgrades Thursday to make the transit system more accessible to riders with disabilities.

Under an MTA Capital Improvement Plan, 11 subway stations in the Bronx and 25 Brooklyn stations will be renovated to make them compliant under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The subway station in Parkchester on the No. 6 line is among the stations that will be undergoing new renovations.

The MTA is investing over $51 billion to upgrade its transit system across the five boroughs.

A total of 70 subway stations citywide will undergo renovations over the next four years to make them accessible to all riders.
