Office of the New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer. Introduction. The subway is the backbone and circulatory system of New York City. It is among the most extensive and well- trafficked subway systems in the world, carrying millions of riders each day to work, to school, to appointments, to cultural events, and to thousands of other activities that could never be sustained without robust mass transit.
It is also among the oldest systems in the world, with much of its critical infrastructure dating back to the early 2. Under pressure from this aging infrastructure and record ridership, subway service has declined dramatically in recent years. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority statistics are clear and indisputable: trains are frequently delayed, platforms are overcrowded, and key infrastructure is being extended beyond its useful life.
The physical underpinnings of the system are beginning to fail. While this declining state of physical repair has been well documented, its effect on people’s lives and livelihoods is too often overlooked. This survey, by New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer, aims to address this gap, providing a real- time snapshot of the personal and material consequences of subway delays.
As the findings make clear, when New Yorkers are left stranded on the subway platform or stuck in a tunnel, they are missing classes and job interviews and doctor’s appointments. They are running late to pick up or drop off their children or care for elderly relatives. They are losing wages and putting their jobs in jeopardy. In short, when subway performance declines, so too does the health, financial security, and quality of life of everyday New Yorkers. Frustration among subway riders is palpable. In this survey of 1,2. June 2. 01. 7—the Comptroller’s Office found the following: Declining subway service has adversely affected the job security, family life, and healthcare of riders.
