Station Agents Must Remain at NYC Subway Entrances

To be delivered to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Public Advocate Letitia James, Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito

Petition Statement

Station Agents are vital to the safety and feeling of security of NYC subway riders. They must remain inside token booths and continue to handle fares.
Our City Elected officials must stop the MTA from carrying out its plans to remove the agents and stop the agency from spending our money to do this.

There are currently 411 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

As a resident of the Bronx, I have personally seen what has happened to station entrances where there is no human presence. At least today, people have the option to go to a staffed entrance and stay in the off-hour waiting area until their train comes.
Without an agent in a fixed position, this vital safety/security feature will be useless.
We need a human presence in the subway system!
