State Sen. Robert Jackson, Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez and Assemblymember Carmen De La Rosa are demanding shuttle buses for the Washington Heights community during elevator repairs at the 181st Street A Train Station.

Many residents commute on a daily basis on rugged terrain filled with hills and deep slopes, making it difficult for senior citizens, differently abled residents and other travelers to get to the subway platform.

The temporary closure of the elevators on 181st Street and 190th Street train stations has prompted local residents, commuters and local elected offices to demand shuttle bus service until the construction is complete.
