Adams Unveils Plan to Address Subway Safety Issues 

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on Friday released the Subway Safety Plan, addressing public safety concerns and supporting people experiencing homelessness and serious mental illness on New York City’s subways.  

The plan includes comprehensive investments in short- and medium-term solutions–including expanded outreach teams with New York Police Department (NYPD) officers and clinicians, and additional housing and mental health resources—and outlines long-term systems improvements.

A key component of the plan will also direct NYPD personnel to assist in enforcing certain subway rules, such as sleeping across multiple seats, exhibiting aggressive behavior to passengers, or creating an unsanitary environment. 

“It is cruel and inhumane to allow unhoused people to live on the subway, and unfair to paying passengers and transit workers who deserve a clean, orderly, and safe environment,” said Adams. “It will take time, but our work starts now.”
