Statement from Senator Hoylman on the L-Train Gas Fume Reports

NEW YORK- Senator Brad Hoylman (D/WF-Manhattan) released the following statement in response to the partial suspension of L-Train service due to the presence of gasoline fumes:

Senator Hoylman said: “The MTA’s two most basic responsibilities are to provide reliable service and to protect riders’ health. It is infuriating and disturbing that they are are failing on both counts. If riders can’t trust the MTA to take care of the basics, then how can we take them at their word on the new L Train plan or anything else?”
