Subway improvements at hand of Bronx, city votersPosted: Updated:
In the upcoming November election, Bronx and city voters will have the chance to improve the subway systems if they vote for the $2.9 billion Transportation Bond Act that will be on the ballot.
A recent survey found the Bronx has the most subway stations without a working public address system. This has caused a major concern among Bronx straphangers because in the event of an emergency, they will not get the information or instructions they need.
If approved, transit officials say the transportation bond would also generate money for expansion projects, including extending the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Station.
