Immigrant advocates calling on MTA to cater to city?s diverse population
Immigrant advocates are calling on the MTA to translate signs in multiple languages to cater to the city?s diverse population.
Advocates say Bronx residents who don?t speak English are at risk of not knowing what to do in case of emergencies on city subways. Some elected officials and immigrant groups say evacuation directions aren?t available for those who speak foreign languages.
The MTA says it is committed to each customer regardless of language. They say MetroCards machines, subway maps and it?s Web site holds information in a variety of languages.
