According to Metro-North, Milford is NOT accessible. To be ADA compliant, there needs to be handicapped access between all platforms. Metro-North indicates which stations are ADA compliant with a wheelchair icon next to the station name on their printed schedules, like this one for the New Haven Line
. The MTA also has a list of accessible stations on their website at: http://mta.info/mta/ada/stations.htm
Jim has said this many times. Before posting information about Metro-North, you should point people to the official information, as it changes frequently. I would not want someone who has mobility problems, like myself, to read this forum and expect to find an accessible station where one was not available. The Metro-North station page had the following information for Milford as of 8/31/2008 (subject to change):
WHEELCHAIR ACCESS: Ramps to platforms are available.
LIMITED ACCESS BETWEEN PLATFORMS: Route between platforms does not meet ADA requirements. Vehicular drop-off and/or pick-up is suggested.
NEAREST STATION WITH FULL ACCESS FOR PERSONS WITH MOBILITY, VISUAL AND HEARING IMPAIRMENTS: New Haven or Bridgeport
