Notable Transit Accessibility Projects/Programs

UP-STAND is a proud member of the Fix the Subway Grassroots Coalition and our founder, Christine, serves on New York City Transit's Advisory Committee for Transit Accessibility (ACTA) as well as on the LIRR's ADA Task Force. We continue to advocate for a family travel information web page, wide fare gates, family fares, and more. UP-STAND appreciates the work of many disability advocates and organizations that have worked with us to advance the aforementioned accessibility projects and policies.


General Accessibility and Family-Friendly Projects

  • During COVID-19, our founder Christine became a volunteer with NYC's Open Streets program and helped to introduce a Kids' Bike Hour for the Astoria neighborhood. 

  • In partnership with Queens artist Rica Takashima, Christine was awarded two 2018 neighborhood grants from the Citizens Committee of New York City to improve accessibility locally, The Ramp Project NYC and One Stop Family Pop Up.

  • Christine served as a 2017 and 2018 CIDNY Poll Site Accessibility Monitor in the NYC General Elections.
