Statement from MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick J. Foye.

“Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order, all customers will be required to wear a face covering while traveling with us during this pandemic, effective Friday, April 17 2020.

We commend the Governor for his leadership in ensuring a safe environment for the essential workers riding with us.

We remind New Yorkers to stay home and observe social distancing measures whenever possible. Walk down the platform, board a different train car or wait for the next train or bus where possible – we all need to change our behavior to protect each other.

Wearing masks and other face coverings in public will help stop the spread and ultimately save lives.”
