Straphanger advocacy group blasts MTA's 'unclear' emergency communication plan
A straphanger advocacy group blasted the MTA?s ?unclear? emergency communication plan in a report released Thursday.
The Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA says the New York City Transit lacks a clear emergency communication plan. It says this means workers and passengers could be at risk if something were to occur on the subway system. The group also found approximately 30 percent of city subway stations did not have PA systems needed to give information to riders during emergencies.
The New York City Transit executive director says some of the research used for the group?s report was outdated and improvements have been made. However, she says in light of that report, transit officials would again review their emergency procedures.
