Today we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. There’s still work to do, but we’ve come a long way and remain committed to transforming our transit network to make it accessible to all riders, including those with all types of disabilities. #ADA30
👋 Meet the Mask Force It’s day 1 of Phase 4 and we've been disinfecting 24/7. We still need you to wear your mask. They're available for free anytime at booths, and starting today volunteers are handing out thousands on subways and buses. We know masks are key to stopping the spread of coronavirus and that wearing them helps keep fellow passengers and our frontline colleagues safe. So we’re making them even easier to access. Keep an eye out for the hundreds of MTA employees who have hopped on subways and buses in their yellow t-shirts, handing out masks to anyone who needs them. We’ll keep making masks as accessible as we can, so please keep wearing them. You’re keeping New York safe.
If you’re back to traveling with us as part of phase 3, welcome! Masks are required. Our team is here to tell you more about how to travel safely with us.
👇A story about Station Maintainer Cordell Etienne and the Bedford Ave Maintenance Shop’s in-house solution to getting hand sanitizer in every subway station. . A few weeks ago, we told you about the hand sanitizer dispensers we've been testing. Vendor tests haven't been successful. Enter the Bedford Ave Maintenance Shop. . We have 472 stations, each of them unique. When something breaks, one of the places we call is the Bedford Ave shop in Crown Heights. They are carpenters, masons, welders, and plumbers, sometimes all at once. Now, they’re also hand sanitizer dispenser builders. . Station Maintainer Cordell Etienne designed the dispenser the shop is now building—his design is quick to build and install, and keeps the hand sanitizer secure and visible. Internally, we've given them the nickname “birdhouse.” Cordell is pictured above with the finished product🌟 . We’ll keep working on solutions, but for now, the birdhouses are there if you need them. #nyc #mta
We take time today to commemorate Juneteenth—the day in 1865 recognized as the end of slavery in the United States. We reflect on the suffering of those who were enslaved. We honor those who have fostered progress in American society. Learn: new.mta.info/Juneteenth
A quick recap of day 1 of phase 1 reopening. 👇 About 800,000 people traveled with us yesterday. While we're running regular weekday service only for essential trips, we’re happy to have more essential and phase 1 workers back to riding the subway with us. Special thank you to everyone who wore their mask yesterday. Face coverings are required while traveling with us. We’ll continue to have some on hand in stations if you’ve forgotten yours. 📊Compared to last Monday, we saw an increase of about 17% in ridership systemwide (and an 85% decrease from 2019 avg. ) To stay up-to-date with daily ridership stats, check out this page: https://new.mta.info/coronavirus/ridership ⬆️We've continued ramping service back up to normal weekday schedules on most lines to make sure essential and phase 1 workers have as much space as possible. Plan ahead and check status on your line here, myMTA or at mta.info before you go. ✨We also continue to disinfect 24/7. Stations will continue to close from 1-5 am. 🆓If you need to travel overnight consider free local and express bus service, or the Essential Connector: https://new.mta.info/coronavirus/overnight We also continued to install floor markings to give you a guide for how to keep safe social distance when you can. And we’ll continue handing out face masks and hand sanitizer for those who needed them. We’ll keep working around the clock to make sure you can get where you need to safely. Keep wearing your masks and washing your hands.
As part of our preparations for your safe return during phase 1 reopening, we’re installing new floor markings and signage with directional cues to help you keep safe a social distance. Give yourself some space when you can.
If you’re traveling with us, you must keep both your nose and mouth covered. Swipe through for some tips on how to do that 👆
Your safety and the safety of our employees is our number one priority. So we’re working all day, every day disinfecting and cleaning trains, buses and stations. We’re also getting more efficient and testing new cleaning methods. See how we’re getting it done (and keep wearing your mask and washing your hands ).
Getting essential workers where they need to go isn't only about operating trains. The Maintenance of Way Track team (they're the blue MTA helmets ) is on the job to make sure train tracks are safe and clear of debris so trains can move through. They are #heroesmovingheroes
Starting Wednesday (late night Tuesday ), May 6, there will be no subway service and every station will be closed from 1-5am, nightly, for cleaning and disinfecting. 🆕We're adding 1,168 overnight bus trips to get essential workers where they need to go. Stations will close at 1am and become exit only. You’ll need to be on your train—and off the platform—by 1am so give yourself extra time. If you're on the train by 1am, you can stay on until your destination. We’ll share last train departure details soon at mta.info/overnight Your health and safety is our highest priority. Closing the subway system overnight allows us to clean and disinfect trains everyday and touch points twice a day. Here's more about how we're enhancing bus service. We’re running overnight service on daytime-only routes or increasing frequency on 61 routes: ➡️Brooklyn: 3 express + 17 local = 20 ➡️Bronx: 5 express + 10 local = 15 ➡️Manhattan: 10 local ➡️Queens: 3 express + 13 local = 16 Typically local routes will run every 20 minutes or better with 13 routes with new overnight hours 37 routes with added overnight service Typically express buses will run every 30 minutes or better 11 interborough routes making additional stops We’re finalizing the schedule data so you can plan your trip with this extra bus service. You can start trip planning at mta.info soon. If this enhanced bus service doesn't work for you, learn more about our Essential Connector program at new.mta.info/overnight This is the first time we’ve done this. 24/7 subway service is as New York as pizza rat. It’ll take time to adjust to our current-normal. But we promise to: 🗺️ Get essential workers where they need to go 📊Monitor demand and performance ✅Make improvements where needed
It's not about "me", it's about "we." Starting today, Friday, 4/17 at 8pm, everyone riding with us must cover their nose and mouth with a mask, scarf, or other cloth cover. Be sure to clean your hands before putting your mask on and avoid touching your mask while wearing it.
Today at 3pm, transit agencies from 35 states and provinces joined us to #SoundTheHorn in honor of the frontline transportation workers who’ve kept essential workers moving across North America. Your tenacious public service to your communities will never be forgotten. By our count, 123 (! ) transit operators participated. Let us know if we missed you. #heroesmovingheroes
From East New York to Elmhurst From Morris Park to Morningside Heights From Clifton to The Rockaways We’re on the job so other essential workers can get to theirs. #heroesmovingheroes
Though you may not always see their faces, each and every day, thousands of people work tirelessly to move subways, buses and trains across the region so New York's other essential workers can get to where they need to go. They are heroes. #HeroesMovingHeroes
The 110 St (Central Park North ) station reopens today after the March 27 fire in which our colleague, Train Operator Garrett Goble, tragically lost his life. Our stations, track, infrastructure, and cleaning teams have worked around the clock to restore service.
Hello, everyone. The subway is here to facilitate New York's essential travel. If you don't have to travel, stay home. If you embark on non-essential travel, you are putting yourself, our employees, and your fellow New Yorkers in harm's way. If your travel is essential, keep reading. If you're still reading this, your travel is truly essential. We are here to help you get where you're going. Here's the deal: Our ability to run frequent subway service is significantly constrained by crew availability. That means subway service is far less frequent than usual—on some lines, every 20-30 minutes. That means some subway lines are running modified service patterns, and you may need to make an additional transfer. That means you need to plan ahead. We're running as many trains as we possibly can, but we’re also insisting that any MTA employee who feels sick or has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 must stay home. That is non-negotiable, and it's part of how we're keeping you safe. As soon as there are any service changes, we'll let you know on mta.info / MYmta. We'll post updates on current service frequencies (headways ) as often as we can. Please: do your part. If you don't need to travel, stay home. That is non-negotiable, too. We know this has been challenging for everyone. We are working around the clock to keep all of you, and our employees, safe. We are grateful for your patience. Stay well and take care.🍎💪 #flattenthecurve
Good evening everyone. 📢STAY HOME. Subways and buses are running this weekend. 📢FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS. Do your part to protect them. Stay home. Stop the spread. 📢 #FLATTENTHECURVE Sorry for shouting, but it’s New York; *some* old habits die hard. If you are traveling with us this weekend, thank you for the work you are doing. Here’s what you need to know. 🚇Subways are running a weekend schedule. Reminder for L customers: We’re pushing forward with the #LProject this weekend. Reminder for Brooklyn: We are postponing the start of the next phase of the #CulverLine Signal Modernization Project. We're prioritizing service reliability as we monitor and respond to the quickly changing situation. This means normal F service in southern Brooklyn this weekend. Other subway construction projects are planned to continue this weekend. Plan ahead if you need to travel at new.mta.info 🚌 If you're essential staff and need to take the bus, we're making some changes: 🗓 Starting Monday, 3/23, board local and SBS buses through the back door. Riders with mobility impairments and all express bus riders will board through the front door. Back door boarding will help keep riders and operators at a safe distance so we can keep people working in healthcare, emergency response, utilities and foodservice moving.
March 17, 2019: 5,568,464 March 17, 2020: 1,785,252 3.7 million of you chose not to ride with us yesterday because you want to #flattenthecurve . We miss you, but for now, we’ll say: thank you for not riding with us. You’re keeping NYC safer. Tomorrow, March 19, we’re running regular service again for the health-care workers, first responders, transit workers, foodservice workers, and anyone else who needs us. Stay home. Stop the spread. Listen to the experts.
Team MTA monitoring the situation around the clock, working closely with all federal, state and local partners to do our part to protect public health. Thank you again to all of our frontline employees for keeping NY moving and showing the very best of New York.
