Weekly number of incidents of vandalism in the transit system

We are providing more frequently updated data and statistics on different aspects of our transit system. This page provides recent New York City Transit data on vandalism of select elements of the transit system.

Updated November 25, 2020

Vandalism is costly to the MTA and to taxpayers, and can in some cases also lead to a safety issue. We are hopeful that increased transparency about vandalism incidents in our system will keep everyone safer and more vigilant.

We plan to update the page weekly with the prior week's figures. Each week’s update will be based on verified incidents as of the report date so data for prior weeks may change as additional incidents are verified.
