Does that argument hold when the one who must comply is a public agency?

yes, the 14th amemdement clearly states that the government can't place one group of citizens above another. ADA puts disabled people on a pedistal.

It's "textualist", thank you very much.

I think "nut" sums it up pretty well.

Re: ADA station improvement plans?

I finally found the key stations list, though only thanks to some individual scanning it.

http://www.nyctransportationaccess.com/ ... -list.html

It's a weird list.

Of course other stations undergoing new construction or major overhaul will become accessible (separately from the key station requirement), but this provides the list of stations "in the works" for 2020.

ADA accessible stations are made that way as long as there is money in the MTA budget for it. If you look at the MTA committee meeting materials, you might be able to find information about ADA accessibility.

Elevators going in: TimesLedger.com

Let's keep the back and forth bickering to a minimum going forward, please?

Brief, fair-use:

Elevators coming to three Queens subway stations

The MTA board approved an amendment to the 2015-2019 capital plan to make 17 stations, including three in Queens, Americans with Disabilities Act compliant by installing elevators as well as redesigning stairwells and mezzanines to help the flow of people during busy hours.

About $200 million will go toward elevators and other ADA accessible improvements to the Astoria Boulevard station on N/W lines, Court Square to the G line and the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the J line.
...
The Astoria Boulevard station will have four elevators installed with two rising from the street to the elevated mezzanine and two more taking riders from the mezzanine up to the platforms.

The station will be closed in February 2019 for nine months as reconstruction brings improvements to the station along with the elevators.
...
The 2015-2019 capital plan already includes $400 million to replace 69 existing elevators and escalators, though the MTA did not confirm before press time whether the escalator at the Woodside-61st Street station which has been closed for extended periods of time for repeated repairs in the past year would be included.
Next stop, Willoughby
