new York

The subway system – the lifeblood of this city’s economy and vitality – is in a precarious state. Weekday ridership has fallen below 60% of pre-pandemic levels. Violent crime figures have risen in crude numbers despite the dramatic decline in drivers. The perception and reality of dangers play a major role. A survey of the city’s workforce last month found nearly 3 in 4 feel less safe on trains than they did two years ago. Transportation officials say drivers who have never returned to the subway are even more afraid of underground crime.
