Submit a FOIL request online
The best way to submit your FOIL request is through our online portal. Please submit your request only once. We have centralized our FOIL processing and requests are handled by a single team. Do not use this portal for requesting copies of a police report. We have made a separate portal for that.
Request a Copy of an MTA PD Police Report
We have launched a specific portal for requesting a copy of a police report. This is no longer part of the FOIL process. A specific portal will help us sort and process these requests faster. Please use the new portal rather than the FOIL request portal. This portal is just for reports created by the MTA Police Department. You can request a copy of a a police report from the New York City Police Department here.
Guides to common FOIL requests
We receive some FOIL requests fairly frequently. We’ve put together guides on what to include with those requests. Those include:
- MetroCard® transaction history
- Train/Bus delay letters
