State Senator Diane J. Savino’s 2013 Staten Island Railway Rider Report

Please take a moment to read my Staten Island Railway Rider Report; just as in my past reports, I go right to the commuter, and the commuters have spoken, it is my hope is they will once again be heard. Most Staten Island Railway riders noted the lack of newsstands and metro card machines, litter, closed waiting rooms, darkness and lack of security cameras or personnel at their stations, while bemoaning the deteriorating connections to their buses and ferry connections. The report will be distributed to commuters, elected officials, transportation advocates, and Administration officials.

Sincerely,

Diane J. Savino
State Senator
23rd District
