Straphangers, can you spare a seat?
Giving up subway seats for those with disabilities isnt just nice. Its the law.
NYC Transit gave a nudge to lazy straphangers today, beginning to run posters across subways and buses that encourage riders to Please offer a seat.
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that subway seats at both ends of train cars be made available for people with disabilities. On buses, the priority seating is toward the front.
The MTA is issuing MetroCards with the reminders in September.
