Police presence increased in subways to tackle rowdy passengers

Written By kom nampuldu on Jumat, 27 Maret 2015 | 18.18

Rowdy subway riders unleashed more mayhem underground this week — as commuters called for greater police presence at all stations.

On Wednesday alone, there were more than 20 incidents in which troublemakers slowed service, after an 80 percent jump in customer-caused delays in January. The latest idiocy included a man attacking a motorman on a 2 train in The Bronx.

James Harris, 61, of The Bronx said he sees cops at major transit hubs keeping order — and he would like to also see them at local stations.

"At 42nd Street, you'll see a heavy police presence, but as far as local stops, I don't ever see police," he said.

The MTA said riders cause only a small percentage of total delays — but any disruption has a big impact.

"While only 4 percent of January delays were attributed to unruly customers, growing ridership that tops 6 million riders on busy days means even the smallest disruptions can create significant delays rippling up and down a subway line," said agency spokesman Adam Lisberg.
