“As New Yorkers continue to emerge from the pandemic, it is paramount that our City and State restore riders’ confidence in a transit system that is safe, reliable, and well-functioning, while still respecting New Yorkers’ civil liberties. Today’s announcement of new funding to install security cameras in subway cars and stations is a welcome step towards that shared goal. It is critical that the MTA ensures that these cameras are operational and maintained to avoid malfunctions, and considers complementary infrastructure investments to make our subways stations safer. Riders should have confidence that they are equally safe on our mass transit system, which is the lifeblood of our city and local economy.”
