A huge pile of money has been poured into the new English-language superhospital in NDG, but the Vendôme métro station, which serves this new hospital complex, will not be made wheelchair accessible with a lift.
The Jean-Talon métro, not far from where I live, is undergoing renovations at one entrance, and will have a lift for people in wheelchairs, parents pushing strollers, and others who are temporarily or permanently less mobile. This station serves two lines, but does not directly serve a hospital - there is a hospital nearby, one station east of Jean-Talon; it is much smaller than this new one planned.
Montreal CBC Daybreak speaking to a disabled advocate about this outrageous (and penny-wise and pound-foolish) oversight.
Having a lift is a boon for many people who don't need a wheelchair, but have difficulty taking the escalator (which is sometimes out of order), moreover most of the métro stations with escalators also have a few stairs people have to climb.
