This measure intends to “overcome the small gap between the train and the edge of the platform, allowing more accessibility in the movement of these users' equipment,” according to a statement.

 

Only stations with lift are to have the accessibility ramps installed.

 

To use this type of equipment, users must request assistance from a Metro employee at the entrance.
