“We commend the NYPD for the investigation that led to rapid arrests of those charged with committing a series of attacks this morning in the subway system. The MTA has a strong partnership with the NYPD, and we applaud Commissioner Shea’s actions to provide much needed resources, including officers surged into the system, as well as the recent announcement of an additional 80 auxiliary officers. We appreciate the NYPD’s ongoing efforts to help keep riders and transit workers safe. We will continue to advocate for much needed mental health resources and other policing resources in order to do all that we can to bring riders back to the transit system, and help the city and region’s economy recover stronger than ever before.”
