Clearly the escalator and elevator challenge is too much for you and you should just scrap them all, perhaps converting them to something nice and pretty, like decorative planters. That way we all have something nice to look at while we're dragging our luggage up the stairs, step by step. We're already used to this, so why not make the experience a little greener? Confused elderly people will find something to smile about when they see cheerful seasonal flowers along the way, encouraging them on to the top. The empty elevator shafts will make dandy terrariums, home to tall flowers and climbing ivy. I'm sure you can even find some strains of shrubs that are not only resilient to hobo pee, but thrive on it as well.
I urge you to give this matter your full attention and consideration, because as it stands those shafts and inclines aren't doing anything but standing around doing nothing, and they'd be put to much better use by just throwing dirt and plant life on them.
