South Shore Gary Station Lacks Disability Access Today
December 4, 2013 — The South Shore’s Rail Line passengers with disabilities are not able to access Gary station train services today.
The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District Office says the Gary Metro Center platform elevator and escalator are out of service.
It says that, pending a complete inspection and repairs, Gary Metro Center is no longer accessible to passengers with disabilities who require either the elevator or escalator to access the train platform.
NICTD says that until further notice the two closest accessible stations to Gary Metro Center are in East Chicago and Portage/Ogden Dunes.
NICTD says it regrets any inconvenience while it is working to restore the elevator and escalator service as quickly as possible.
