Subway Entrance

"Controversial Opening" (May 30) missed a very important point. How many passengers will require elevator service at the Vermont/Sunset subway station? That would be people with strollers and buggies; people on crutches, people in wheelchairs, etc. This point was not mentioned in the discussion of the cost of the second subway entrance for Kaiser Permanente Medical Center.

The problem is that every station on the line is identical. The argument is made that it is cheaper to build cookie-cutter stations, but the fact is that it costs more money to go back and correct the problems created by the differences in need at some of the stations.

The community is fortunate that Kaiser Permanente voluntarily contributed $5 million toward the cost of the second entrance/exit.
