Brooklyn, NY—Senator Eric Adams joined TWU Local 100 leadership in a press conference in front of Jackie Gleason Bus Depot located in Sunset Park.

“It is unacceptable that as of October 16th, there have only been 679 partitions installed out of the MTA’s 7,000-bus fleet,” said TWU Local 100 President John Samuelsen. “The MTA is responsible for providing a safe work environment for our members, who are subject to physical assaults, spitting, menacing, harassment, and more as they carry out their duty to the riding public.”
