The stop also has a handicapped-accessible sign. However, riders complain the curb is too high, sometimes forcing wheelchair-bound riders to wait in the street for a bus.
Improvements have been made at a nearby bus stop. Riders say the stop near Paul Avenue should have been improved at the same time.The MTA says the Department of Transportation is responsible for installing sidewalks. News 12 The Bronx is awaiting comment from the DOT on the matter.
