RIght now, Vendôme Metro only has one entrance, and it's not accessible for people with mobility issues.
The protesters, who represented at least nine organizations, dropped off a petition with more than 2,000 signatures, asking the province to commit to planning to build a second, accessible entrance at Vendôme.
The petition demands that a timetable for the construction of a second entrance to the Vendôme Metro station be provided quickly.
"Without a second entrance, it will be an obstacle course,” said Marie-Josee Dupuis, spokeswoman for the Montreal Seniors Steering Committee. "You have to climb many steep steps followed by a long walk outside."
She said the province is skirting committing to building a permanent solution. Right now, the Metro is being updated, but there's no plan to build a new entrance, despite plans to open the new superhospital next to the station in April.
The STM declined a request to be interviewed.
